We were proud to have seven Ampcontrol representatives from across our Hunter operations participate in the 2019 Hunternet Future Leaders Program. The participants celebrated their success at a gala dinner in Newcastle on Friday 25 October.

The Hunternet Future Leaders program, now in its fifth year, is designed to equip future leaders with the skills, contacts and confidence to lead. The program is delivered across 12 sessions by current leaders and professional practitioners and culminates in a group project, supported by an experienced industry mentor.

The objective of this year’s group project was to solve the issues in Newcastle’s transition from a regional city to an emerging global city. The Future Leaders were also tasked with identifying natural and built assets can be leveraged to establish the Newcastle as a truly global city.

During the gala dinner, the five Future Leaders groups delivered an elevator pitch presentation of the solution they had developed before the winning submission was announced.

Team HealthPort, featuring Ampcontrol participant Andrew Fisher took home the top gong for their concept. HealthPort proposed attracting health and technology companies to Newcastle to promote economic growth, sustainability and diversity through the establishment of three interconnected innovation precincts.

Congratulations to everyone who was involved in this year’s program. We’re excited to see where this opportunity will take our Future Leaders within the organisation.
