Jo Verrent Sync Leadership Program


The Australia Council is inviting applications from Australian cultural leaders and influencers with disability to participate in an intensive leadership development residency 22-26 October 2014.

The Sync Leadership residency will be presented by Jo Verrent, a UK based artist, producer and consultant with disability who specialises in the development of diversity and access, currently Senior Producer with Unlimited.

Sync and its sister programme in the south-east are training programs that focus on the interplay between leadership and disability. The provide fresh perspectives and also challenge deep seated thinking about leadership and disability. Designed to be radically different to any other training programs for people with disability, it takes its inspiration and name from syncopation – the emphases on an unusually un-emphasised beat.

Sync leadership pairs leadership learning and one-to-one coaching:

The members will be given access to leadership training, including five full days of face-to-face development work as a group.

Following the residency each member will be offered a limited number of personal coaching sessions over the following six months with Jo Verrent, course leader and/or Sarah Pickthall (co-creator of Synd) with options ranging from face to face, by telephone, email or msn.

For more information on the residencies and how to apply, please see the Australia Council website.
