Change Makers

Change Makers Foundation is our 6-month flagship programme designed for leaders and change-makers who are ready to turbocharge their impact and influence.

When you join Foundation, you’ll learn and grow into the disciplines of Change Makers to fast-track your change agenda.  

You'll be led through a rich curriculum and share evolving knowledge with like-minds putting their change agenda’s and themselves, under the microscope. 

Your cohort will meet every five weeks for full-day workouts to connect and strengthen each others thinking. And in between workouts, you'll continue to amplify your growth with self-paced learning, experimenting and contributing to a thriving community on Co-Lab, Change Makers online learning lab and collective space.

Through deliberate practice, openness to share, and accountability, Change Makers Foundation will help you to develop the capabilities and confidence to lead with purpose and scale to greater heights.

  • Your Credibililty: what makes people come on the journey with you?
  • Your Network: who do you need to know?
  • Your System: where are your leverage points?

Change Makers

People who are invited to join Amplify have really leaned into the Foundation programme and want to amplify their impact by going deeper into their own learning and going bigger in the world. With social learning at the forefront, we’ve adopted communities of practice to enable deliberate practice, shared learning, reflection, and accountability - leading to a community of action.

Amplify meets every 5-6 weeks for full-day workouts along with a yearly retreat and opportunity to develop and evolve to become a Change Makers Mentor.

"Change Makers isn't simply a leadership program. Rather, it is an adventure where you are surrounded by epic like-minded individuals who will open your mind and encourage you to dig-deep, challenge assumptions and the status quo, and best of all - experiment!"

Kate Forsyth, Business Continuity Manager, ACC
