Global Leadership Practices Primer- China


  • Yellow Edge Level 2, 9 Sydney Ave Barton Canberra Australia (map)

Join us for the Global Leadership Practices Primer- China. 

This seminar provides preparation time for participants enrolled in the GLP China program. It introduces participants to the importance of thinking globally while leading locally. The seminar encourages participants to ground themselves in clear understanding of what leadership means to them and how this is demonstrated in a globalised world. Over the course of two days we lay the groundwork for participants to become more deeply aware of how China impacts on economic, social and public life in Australia and hence the importance of better understanding China. Program presenters share insights about China’s history and culture, its political system, what life is like for public officials at the grassroots and the current preoccupations of China’s national leadership.
The seminar also provides an introduction to Shanghai and the China Executive Leadership Academy, Pudong (CELAP) where participants will be based and logistical briefings to prepare participants for their  trip to China.
