For more than 40 years, AIM WA+UWA Business School Executive Education’s Advanced Management Program (AMP) has been a trusted pathway for professionals and leaders wanting to take the next step in their careers. It challenges participants to seek a deeper understanding of their leadership capabilities and management expertise, as they contribute to the senior levels of their organisations. The program allows participants to shift from being ‘in the job’ to ‘across the job’, with broader organisational mindset and a greater strategic perspective.

Participants are encouraged to challenge their perspectives on organisational strategy and operations, augmented by insights into their individual leadership values and capabilities. The AMP allows participants to release themselves from traditional work practices in order to step back and integrate broader insights into new management and leadership challenges.

Facilitated by a globally respected team of faculty and professional experts, learning is achieved through interactive teaching, guided discussion, case study analysis, syndicate projects, peer review and personal coaching methodologies. Cutting edge case studies are used from the West Australian, Australian and global economies, including from leading global business schools.

Condensed from its origins in business school based, accredited Executive MBA programs, the AMP includes the basic building blocks of management theory, strategic and financial management; managing human capital; organisational performance; negotiation skills; and innovation, change and marketing management. Highly credentialed and respected Chief Executive guest speakers present on a range of topics including leadership, sustainability, growth and talent retention and attraction.

Complementing the management content in the program are presentations, experiential activities and individual coaching designed to facilitate self-reflection and increase an individual’s effectiveness and leadership potential. Participants undertake a 360° assessment prior to the program, receive individualised executive coaching, examine their ability to work in teams and cross-cultural situations, and reflect on their leadership skills and their ability to achieve peak performance and work life balance.

Building upon the Perth and Peel @3.5m Sub-regional Frameworks 47% infill development target, the State Government recently released its ‘Our Priorities’ document, setting out a number of policy objectives.

Ray Haeren, Regional Director- Urbis will present the findings of Urbis’ research examining the emerging trends in medium density housing and how the industry has been able to respond to market demand for this type of housing.

Then you will hear case studies from developers set to deliver major medium density projects in the year(s) ahead. Featuring;

The 70s was the decade of disco glitz and glamour and STUDIO 54 was the world-famous discoteque at the epicentre of the 1970s Disco scene. It was an outrageous haven of hedonism, tolerance, glitz, glamour, and the music of Disco.
Spend a night with the extravagance of the 70s Disco scene and enjoy a little trip down memory lane, seventies-style!

From that first meeting in 1972 attended by a few industry professionals, to today’s 800 plus members and guests from all over the world, the WA Mining Club has grown and changed with the times.

The ability to foster values that drive outcomes is critical. Everyone has values on the 'walls', so how come there are so many people centred issues in the workplace?


What often gets missed are the behaviours, the 'way things are done around here' and the co-creation of social contracts within teams.


This session kicks off with coffee and culture prompts (to take the sting out of networking) followed by a short talk and some final networking. The talk will include a practical tool which can be used in the workplace.


The tickets for this event are 'donate what you like' and all proceeds go to PROJECT ROCKIT. PROJECT ROCKIT is Australia's youth-driven movement against bullying, hate and prejudice. They empower school students to challenge bullying in school, online and beyond.


The Coffee & Culture event will take place in the There Is art gallery in Perth.

  • Venue:Frisk Small Bar


  • Type:Networking
  • Industry:Education


We're headed back to an old favourite and inviting a speaker along for the ride!

That's right - an absolute legend from Melbourne is flying in just to join us for drinks

Join us at Frisk in Northbridge for a gin, or twelve, as we discuss digital transformation, innovation. and building a multi-million startup from a scrappy MVP with Sked Social founder Hugh Stephens.

Will we see you there?



Insightful investor and serial start-upper Hugh sees digital transformation and innovation opportunities everywhere.

A self-described ‘failed medical student’ with a penchant for code, he eschewed the world of medicine for a life as an entrepreneur. He's built a consulting business, become a renowned start-up investor, and build Insta management platform Sked from a spare-bedroom side project into a $multi-million international business.

Along the way, he has worked with a dizzying array of big-name brands and became one of SmartCompany’s ‘Hot 30 under 30’ entrepreneurs (two years running). He has also been listed in the Forbes 30 Under 30 Asia.



Leadership Maturity & Vertical Development

Most of us are familiar with the idea that “the significant problems that we face today cannot be solved with the same level of thinking we were at when we created them” (Einstein).

  • Dates:Oct 29
  • Time(s):5.30pm - 7.30pm
  • Venue:Leadership Centre


  • Type:Networking,Talks
  • Industry:Leadership,Education,Human Resources
  • Hosted By:AIM WA



The Challenge of Growing Bigger Minds

Most of us are familiar with the idea that “the significant problems that we face today cannot be solved with the same level of  thinking we were at when we created them” (Einstein). But how do we assess and develop our “level of thinking”?

As leaders face ever more complex adaptive challenges, it would appear that cultivating new levels of thinking is increasingly necessary. So how might organisations measure the “level of thinking” in their leadership community? And how might leaders assess whether the level of thinking is a match for their leadership challenges and develop increased capacity where it is required?

In this session, Angela explores these questions through the lens of the Leadership Maturity Framework. She will take us on a journey through the seven stages of adult development (or levels of thinking) typically seen in organisations and how each stage impacts organisational performance and shapes organisational culture.

Vertical development (the work of growing bigger minds) has been identified by the Centre for Creative Leadership as the fastest growing trend in leadership development and you will leave this session with:
• Greater insight into your own stage of development
• An appreciation for the capacities and limitations of others’ stage of development
• Insight into the value of horizontal and vertical development
• Ideas for tapping into the hidden developmental capacity in your organisation.

UDIA WA: Modern Methods of Construction

The Changing Nature of How We Build

  • Venue:Crown Perth


  • Type:Workshops,Networking,Breakfasts
  • Industry:Real Estate
  • Hosted By:UDIA


The engineering and construction landscape is going through a phase of accelerated transformation due to forces both inside and outside the sector. Multiple megatrends (such as population growth, urbanisation, and innovation) are demanding greater consideration for long-term sustainability and creating fertile conditions  for rapid change. How we build (methods & materials) is thus evolving, and this will inevitably influence how residential property is developed in WA. How will the homes of the future be built?

Hear from-

  • Bert Bardoel, EY Oceania Engineering & Construction Leader, as he presents the findings of EY International’s research on the Construction Sector Transformation, including global trends and predictions.
  • Michael Berglin, Deputy CEO & Robin Gerum, Head of Business Development & Strategy at Serneke (Sweden’s fastest growing construction company) as they talk collaborative design for buildability & sustainability, construction planning & use of offsite prefabrication, and preparing for the future.
  • Bill Scanlan, EY Director will then release the findings of the UDIA WA commissioned research on the potential outcomes & implications of adopting modern housing construction methods here in WA.

Does using materials other than double brick affect housing affordability through reduced lot construction requirements and shorter construction time frames? What sort of sustainability outcomes can the use of different methods & materials drive?

This is your chance to hear insights on global best practice direct from international leaders, and be the first to hear the results of important local research.
