“The FutureNet Business Leaders has provided me with an opportunity to build my leadership skills through presentations on topics including Leadership and Influencing, Self-Awareness and Motivating Teams. The lecturers organised by Alexia/Consult Australia were excellent and ensured that I was learning in every session.
