What the 2019 Alumni have to say

“ I thought I was on a mission to find my "why". Actually I had that all along, it was my "how" that needed clarity. I now see myself as a leader and endeavour to always act as a leader, using a positive voice to advocate for and influence within our industry and community.”

“Next Level has refocused me - made me consider further education, broadening my networks and being part of governance roles outside of my business.”
