Our bespoke programs

At the Peter Cullen Water and Environment Trust, we design leadership programs that produce meaningful impact for individuals and their organisations.

Our bespoke programs are designed to address the specific needs of organisations, whether they be government, corporate, or the not-for-profit and community sectors.  They are applicable for individuals first embarking upon their leadership journeys, through to those at the senior, executive and board levels.

We understand that even the best leadership tools and cutting edge insights are meaningless unless they can be applied in the workplace, and that is why we work closely with our clients to understand their leadership development requirements. That is why our iterative design process enables us flexibility in our delivery approach, to suit changing individual, group and organisational dynamics.

Our most recent bespoke program is the Water Services Association of Australia (WSAA) Young Professionals Leadership Program that provides a structured learning framework in conjunction with practical exposure in WSAA industry leadership forums.

Please contact the Office if you would like to discuss your particular learning needs.

WSAA/PCT Young Utility Leaders Program

In 2018 the Peter Cullen Trust partnered with the Water Services Association of Australia (WSAA) to design and deliver a bespoke leadership program targeted at young emergent leaders within the water utility sector in Australia.

The resulting Young Utility Leaders Program was run over three key sessions across a 12-month period with six individuals selected by WSAA to participate. The Program provided participants with the tools and resources required to transform their leadership potential into a leadership mindset.

The Program has proved highly successful and truly transformational for the participants involved. After the success of the pilot program in 2018/19 the program has run three times, in 2018/19,  2019/20 and again in 2020/21. WSAA has recently invited applications for the 2021/22 program and has once again been inundated with a large number of outstanding candidates from which to select six final participants.

The video below was compiled by the participants from the 2019/20 Program as a reflection of their learnings and the transformative outcomes of the Program.
