On Friday 22nd November, ten future leaders were inducted into the prestigious Hostplus Leadership Institute program due to recommence in February 2020.

Over the years, the Leadership Institute, formerly known as the Club Super Leadership Institute (2013 – 2019) and Fosters Leadership Academy (2002 – 2012), has advanced a long list of outstanding industry leaders who range from Duty Managers, Marketing Managers, HR Managers and Operations Managers through to General Managers and CEO’s.

In 2020, the Institute will be known as the Hostplus Leadership Institute as we proudly acknowledge the new naming rights sponsor, Hostplus.

Over the 12 – 18 month program, participants have the opportunity to travel across Queensland Clubs visiting the venues of their peers, acquiring contacts and forming friendships that will last a lifetime – whilst earning an industry leading qualification, a Diploma of Leadership and Management.  Along this journey, they will also be given the opportunity to learn from inspiring industry leaders.

With sponsors including naming rights sponsor Hostplus, founding partner Carlton United Breweries, Coca-Cola Amatil, CTA Training Specialists, DWS Hospitality Specialists and the Australian Club Management Institute, the Leadership Institute is the pinnacle of educational excellence in the Club industry.

The 10 inductees for 2020 are:

As 2019 draws to a close, we are excited to watch the 10 new leading managers progress, grow and excel through the 18 month program next year.
