2019 Courage Conference

Leading with Courage
14-15 November 2019, Melbourne

Proudly hosted by insium and the University of Melbourne’s Centre for Positive Psychology.

Do you have the courage to lead?

Join Australian leadership consultant Dina Pozzo, a courage researcher and certified facilitator of Brené Brown’s Dare to Lead ™ program, for Australia’s first-ever Courage Conference & Masterclass: Leading with Courage on 14-15 November in Melbourne.

Answering the call for greater courage at all levels within Australian organisations, Day One will feature a keynote from Dina drawing on her own work and the work of University of Houston Professor and best-selling author Brené Brown; a “Courage 360″ panel discussion exploring courage from all angles across business, education, government, and community sectors; the “Courage Couch” featuring 1:1 conversations with courageous individuals, and a number of interactive activities designed to boost Australia’s courage levels. Day Two will provide an opportunity for a smaller group of “Courage Crusaders” to delve deeper into courage and to develop action plans to implement courage within their workplaces.

Attendees will leave the conference inspired, motivated and equipped with the tools to lead courageously within and beyond their organisations.

Why should you attend?

  • Build your courage reserves and learn how courage can be applied in the workplace
  • Connect with and learn from other leaders interested in leading with courage
  • Hear stories of courage from business, education, government and community sectors including individuals from our Courage Interviews.

Drawing on Brené Brown’s world renowned Dare to Lead™ program, and the Leading with Courage™ program developed by Dina Pozzo, the 2019 Courage Conference & Masterclass will demonstrate how these lessons in courage can be applied in the professional environment—from business to education to government to community organisations.
