Event description

Description

Leading with purpose is an essential part of achieving your goals and engaging the people around you to lead meaningful change.

  • Get a personal insight into the purpose-driven practice of a Not For Profit Founder as he leads an organisation to improve literacy in Zimbabwe.
  • Define your purpose and build a plan to help you lead yourself and others.
  • Network with UOW students, Staff and Alumni by working in teams to solve real-world problems through purposeful leadership.

Meet Alfred, he started his leadership journey as a PhD graduate in Materials Engineering but despite his success as a Research Engineer, he couldn’t shake the childhood memory of walking barefoot through his village to get to a school with no books. In 2015 Alfred turned this memory into a powerful purpose to promote education and improve literacy in rural Zimbabwe. Alfred mobilised a small and committed group of people and he founded Aussie Books For Zim, a social enterprise that collects new and gently used books, stationery and sports equipment and ships them to rural Zimbabwe, where libraries are set up for the pupils and surrounding community.

Alfred turned his purpose into powerful leadership when he founded Aussie Books For Zim and to date, the organisation has shipped 30 000 books to Zimbabwe and are currently in the process of setting up more libraries in rural schools.

During this UOWx Interactive Seminar Alfred will help you distil your purpose through your own journey by helping you see how you can lead change, drive purpose and engage the people around you to achieve your goals.
