Albury-Wodonga students lead the way

19 May 2011

Student members of La Trobe’s Infinity Leadership Program at the Albury-Wodonga campus have organised a very successful Leadership Seminar for students at the campus.

studentsThe guest speaker at this student-organised Leadership Seminar was Andrea Culligan-Dring.

Andrea is Managing Director of Unimail, a dynamic organisation focussing on graduate attraction and engagement, with eight separate business units and 20 staff across two countries. Andrea has won a host of business success awards, including the 2009 Telstra NSW Young Businesswoman of the Year.

Andrea spoke about her journey to becoming an award-winning business leader: "Choices, Pitfalls and Results - The Journey so far".

Students were then able to discuss with Andrea the key aspects associated with professionalism, personal branding and strategies for maximising opportunities for graduate entry into the workforce.

 “Andrea’s seminar was an inspirational and motivating experience that provided key insights into leadership as well as future careers,” Jess Laing, student member, Infinity Leadership Program. “Andrea’s compelling charisma captivated the audience and enthused people to take hold of their future.”

The Infinity Leadership Program is for students aspiring to leadership roles. It provides an opportunity for participants to utilise and develop their knowledge of leadership and to extend their skills and experiences by putting leadership into practice. It also gives more opportunities for students to engage with La Trobe alumni and staff.

The Infinity Leadership Program involves attendance at a two-day conference, participating in a series of leadership seminars by guest speakers and completing a Leadership in Action project.

Millie Moran, Student Engagement Officer, Albury-Wodonga campus, said that it was clear that the students were drawn into Andrea’s journey. “They also gained a great deal from her very practical personal and career development tips.”
