Transforming Self & Society for a
Wellbeing Future: Leadership & Learning Program 2020.

Health Futures Australia is a for purpose charity working to ignite and inspire Australia’s leadership to create a wellbeing economy.

Health Futures Australia works with you to unlock your potential to become a leading changemaker, intrapreneur, entrepreneur and innovator to improve the health and wellbeing of Australians.

As we transform from ego to ecosystem economies the change needed has to come from us individually, collectively, whether you are a researcher, business owner, community member, an entrepreneur, or a volunteer, so let’s redesign the system together to improve health and wellbeing.

This immersive learning experience gives you the time and space to pause and pivot into the new future.

New leadership capabilities and tools will be developed for use in wider systemic change. The Immersion will further your leadership capabilities, provide a safe space to explore and create pathways to change, and inspire you to build a movement at the heart of a new social market for health and wellbeing in our community.

The immersive is for leaders who want change driven from a place of authentic leadership, vulnerability and deep systemic change. For those of us prepared to lean into the work required for a new wellbeing economy.
