Future Leaders is a professional and personal development program that creates a network of confident, committed individuals who will
be next and contribute to the future success of the
Australian wine community.

Funded by the sector and coordinated by Wine Australia, Future Leaders is a biennial program offered to applicants with open, creative, inquisitive minds who are early to mid-career and already demonstrating leadership potential.


The program is designed to achieve transformational and sustainable impact, not temporary inspiration. 

Since 2006 there have been 122 Future Leaders graduates.
Many have taken roles at regional wine and grape grower associations and some have also been appointed to national committees and boards.

Take a look at what our 2022 successful applicants had to say.

Future Leaders is more than a leadership program, it gives permission for you to find your own way, building a leadership style that truly fits you. It's impossible to overstate the transformational power of this program, a truly once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.

This program is a golden invitation to take a closer look at personal goals, values and behaviours and discover how to create a more coherent and considered approach to leadership.

I've been pushed outside of my comfort zone, challenged, and supported  through the growth that this program has created. The blinkers are off, and I’m thoroughly excited about what the future looks like. I couldn't recommend this program more highly to anyone thinking about applying: you won't regret it.
