"What inspires me about my job is seeing the results. At the start it’s all about learning about consulting, but once you’ve nailed that, you start to see the bigger picture and the impact that you have on your customers’ lives, and in turn the impact that can have on your team’s success."

Laura Kennedy, 2014 Graduate

"One of the highlights of the program was getting to meet and network with senior leaders – that was really awesome. When you start in a business you don’t usually have exposure to such influential people. That was a privilege and really exciting."

Jayde Berry, 2013 Graduate

“The great thing about the Grad Program is that it’s very structured and set up to help you learn and become the best leader possible. You get opportunities to do projects, such as how to develop a business plan, run your own business meeting, set team goals and visions, and get the best out of the people you lead. It’s really about giving you the best possible skills to run your own business.”

Ashleigh Whelan, 2013 Graduate
