CSLI – 2016 Graduation & 2017 Launch


Since 2002, the Club Super Leadership Institute has given 10 high performing individuals the opportunity to gain a Diploma of Leadership & Management, industry recognition and continual professional development through a 12 month scholarship program.

The aim of the program is to create leaders of excellence to prosper within the Club Industry by creating a platform for future leaders to continue their education and create professional relationships with industry peers and stakeholders.

During the 12 month program, participants travel across QLD visiting the venues of their peers and undertaking training sessions.

This year we had 10 great candidates who, in addition to their training sessions, attended experiential tours across the state to gain further insight into the industry – and to have some fun of course!

This year’s tours included; Jupiter Hotel Casino, Yatala Brewery, Great Keppel Island Cruise, Coffee Experience with Grinders, CUB Race Day, and Brisbane Lions’ Corporate Box.

To celebrate the achievements of the 2016 graduates, and give a warm welcome to the new candidates for 2017, we celebrated the annual CSLI graduation & launch at the Emporium Hotel in Fortitude Valley.

It was a wonderful evening of celebrations, and a great networking opportunity for all of the guests.



Each year we present three graduates with awards for their efforts during the program.

This year we were delighted to award the following graduates;

  • Tanya Fawcett, Diggers Services Club Awarded Outstanding Improvement
  • Adam Paterson, Southport Sharks awarded Passion for the Industry
  • Mitch Milanovic, Victoria Point Sharks award Future Outstanding Leader of the Industry.

Guest Speaker

This year, for the first time, we had a CSLI alumni deliver a speech to help encourage and motivate our candidates. Suzanne Long, General Manager of Nambour RSL delivered a truly inspiring speech, giving insight into her career and professional development.

The program, tours, and events would not be possible without our sponsors’ generous contribution; Club Super (naming sponsor), Carlton & Untied Brewers (founding spondor), Coca-Cola Amatil, Next Payments and DWS Hospitality Specialists.

We are extremely proud of this year’s graduates and looking forward to watching them grow and become future leaders in our industry.

With 2016 nearly at end, we are excited to commence the program again in January 201
