The Bali Experience

In 2019 I had the great privilege of facilitating, along with Richard Dore, at the Leading Innovation & Strategy Conference in Bali and it was sensational.

Delegates from Australia, Indonesia and Saudi Arabia came together to enjoy each other’s company, and two wonderful days of inspirational Leadership development (see feedback below).

I am thrilled to say that it is happening again in 2020 and for those people who have been contemplating attending – IT IS TIME TO REGISTER.

This conference has been designed for:

  • • Individuals – wanting to be more innovative and strategic in their leadership
  • • Whole teams – a great opportunity to reward your team and re-connect with them in a relaxed and inspirational environment
  • • Relaxation – Leaders who want to combine professional development with a holiday with family and friends

So, if you fit any of those categories, then we would love to have you join us in Bali in August 2020.

If you have any questions about the conference, please feel to contact us on 1300 219 903 or visit our website for further information and to register.

"Prior to the 2-days face-to-face I was enthusiastic to learn and think through of the service changes to be implemented in my role and position. I did not want to overthink prior in order to be receptive and open. The building a strategic plan on top of the art of strategic quitting were my highlights. I cannot think of anything I would like to see changed in the program as I have nothing to compare it to - met my personal and professional needs."

- Jo-Ellen Reid - North West Regional Hospital


"I thoroughly enjoyed the "Bali experience". Des & Richard provided an exciting, interesting & educating two day program. The opportunity to share the experience with my son, who has only recently joined my business, made it even more memorable. The course content was provoking & inspirational. We both created a lot of ideas, plans & skills that we will use moving into the future..."

- Dave Slatter - Coastal Engineering


"A 2-day concise and informative program. All the knowledge and thoughts on leadership that I acquired over the past years were spinning in my head, and the course helped me organize it and bring it in order, you made the implicit explicit!"

- Adnan Ishgi - Ministry of National Guard
