The LGMA Australasian Management Challenge is Australia and New Zealand’s premier forum for current and emerging local government leaders. It is a sophisticated development program designed to deliver personal, team and organisational professional development.

The Challenge has been running for more than 20 years. It is good fun, great value and a hands-on approach to leadership development that translates into relevant, tangible and enduring benefits for your people, teams and organisations.

Everyone who participates in the Challenge - from experienced managers to emerging leaders, comes away with new and practical insights into excellence in leadership and management.

More than any other traditional training program or seminar the LGMA Australasian Management Challenge assists councils to:

  • Attract and retain staff
  • Improve organisational culture
  • Promote team-work
  • Develop new and sustainable management skills
  • Breakdown silos
  • Grow inter-departmental relationships, and
  • Build capacity
