The Southern Institute of Technology (SIT) has been working together with the Auckland University of Technology (AUT) to bring its leadership and management courses to the Queenstown campus at Remarkables Park and will next week (June 4 and 5) hold information sessions for local businesses and individuals.

AUT currently offers two courses in Auckland, the Innovative Leaders and Authentic Leadership programmes, which are three-month ‘while you work’ modular courses open to any individual.

The Innovative Leaders course covers topics such as strategy (including strategic thinking), change, finance, operations, marketing, people, and governance.

The Authentic Leadership programme includes understanding the difference between leadership and management, structuring a personal development plan, learning about personality differences and how to build and maintain an efficient team.

AUT Executive Education Manager Russell Harray will present the courses to interested local businesses.

“Not only are these sessions an opportunity for businesses and leaders to find out about the courses, but perhaps more importantly to discuss and contribute to course content,” said Mr Harray.

“That way we’ll ensure the Queenstown versions of the courses will be unique to local businesses, and tailored and adapted to fit their needs.

“We want to hear from local businesses, leaders and middle to senior management on what their learning requirements are, so we can adapt and match the courses to these needs.”

Interested businesses and leaders are invited to attend one of two sessions being held at the Remarkables Park campus at 4pm on June 4 and 10am on June 5 and should contact Pam Hulls on 0800 40 FEES for details or email
