About Breakthrough Leaders

Alongside an exceptional peer group, you will go on a ten-month journey of discovery, learning and deep development. Four immersive and intensive four-day residential courses are complemented by coaching from leading New Zealand business figures. We encourage women to apply who have a significant track record in the private or public, NFP or NGO sector, or in their wider community.

Only 30 exceptional women are selected for the programme each year — ensuring that issues can be discussed freely and individuals can learn from one another. The programme combines distinctive elements of the New Zealand leadership experience with overseas exposure to give participants a truly global perspective. Breakthrough Leaders alumnae become part of one of the most distinguished and powerful networks in the New Zealand leadership sector, continuing to learn from one another well beyond the programme.

Register your expression of interest for the 2020 Breakthrough Leaders Programme. We will be calling for applications in June 2019.
