Every year New Zealand celebrates Leadership Week. This is an annual event for all ages that highlights the value that great leadership provides for our communities. As Sir Peter Blake showed New Zealand, there are leaders and there are dreamers. Leaders make things happen. Dreamers have a vision. The truly special people do both.
Victoria celebrates Leadership in association with the Sir Peter Blake Trust as students return to start Trimester 2 on the 16th July 2012. This is a great time for you to think about how you are going to develop leadership and fulfil your dreams. Many people dream, but Sir Peter Blake set his mind to a goal and went for it, believing that “change comes through realising the vision and turning it into reality.”
This year during Leadership Week 16th to 20th July 2012 be inspired to Dare to Dream by joining one or both of the University’s extra-curricular leadership programmes.
