Cairns Chamber of Commerce Class 2022

Emerging Leaders Program Graduates

The achievements of sixteen of Far North Queensland’s high-potential emerging leaders will be recognised at the Cairns Chamber of Commerce March Business Luncheon as they graduate from the 2022 Emerging Leaders Program.

The Cairns Chamber of Commerce Emerging Leaders Program is Far North Queensland’s premier leadership program for 35-year-olds and under. It is designed to develop globally relevant and locally connected leaders, in a manner that supports the future economic, social and environmental prosperity of Far North Queensland.

Over the last twelve months, the delegates have:

  • Participated in five full industry immersion days where they explored the industries that drive Cairns whilst working on their public speaking, networking and critical thinking skills.
  • Gained access to expert guest speakers who discussed the key opportunities and challenges facing our region.
  • Connected with an exclusive network of like-minded individuals who are committed to building their leadership capacity and making a difference in the Cairns and surrounding regions.
  • Paired with a business or industry leader to partake in a formalised mentoring program.

The key themes of the industry immersion days were: understanding our region, manufacturing, marine and defence, aviation and export, social issues and impacts, and tourism.

Alongside the industry-specific content explored in the program, core themes that are relevant across all industry sectors and were incorporated into each industry immersion day were leadership, the role of government, innovation and entrepreneurship, and social enterprise.
