McCarthy Mentoring extends Leadership Forums to Cbr & Sydney

Our Leadership Forums connect and support high performing executives across all sectors. Forums offer people the opportunity to share challenges and workshop ideas in a confidential small-group environment.

The bi-monthly facilitated learning sessions combine practical experience, case studies and theory to deliver a powerful development program that stretches and challenges each participant. The Forum strengthens capability, confidence and capacity to effectively lead in this changing climate.

Following the success of the Newcastle Forum, we are pleased to extend our offer to Canberra and Sydney launching July 2017. Full details and registration details can be found here McCarthy Mentoring Leadership Development Programs.
