Applications open for 2019 Club Super Leadership Institute

We are looking for the best of the best for the 2019 Club Super Leadership Institute (CSLI) – is it you?

Each year, 10 high performing Community Club individuals are invited to join the CSLI program to gain a nationally accredited qualification, industry recognition and the opportunity to grow and develop in the footsteps of previous graduates.

Since 2002, the CSLI, formerly known as the Fosters Leadership Academy, has advanced a long list of outstanding industry leaders who range from Duty Managers and Marketing Managers, right up to General Managers and CEO’s.

Over the 12-month program, participants will have the opportunity to travel across QLD visiting the venues of their peers, gain contacts that will last a lifetime, earn an industry leading qualification, learn from legends and of course, have a whole lotta fun!

With sponsors including industry heavyweights Club Super, Carlton United Breweries, Coca-Cola Amatil, and Australian Club Management Institute, the Leadership Institute is the pinnacle of educational excellence in the industry.

This year’s Club Super Leadership group is represented by the following participants and venues:

  • Danni Blair, Aspley Hornets
