Location and Key Dates

SILA is a national program, which will roll out at locations across Australia over the next five years. In 2021, the program is available for leaders who live in NSW and ACT.  In 2022, we will open the program to participants in VIC and TAS.

:: Applications for 2021 have now closed. Subscribe for updates on future cohorts ::

The precise location for the upcoming SILA program is still to be confirmed, due to complications arising from bookings due to COVID. It will be at a comfortable location within a few hours’ drive from Sydney in an establishment that is equipped and accustomed to hosting C-suite corporate bookings of more than 20 attendees.

Travel to the retreats is funded by the program and we can provide additional travel funds to regional and rural attendees.
