Message from Shahid Majeed

Shahid Majeed - LEAD Program DirectorLEAD is the flagship leadership development program of the UNSW Australia Business School which is a unique program because it complements leadership and professional skills development workshops and networking events with a residential leadership camp to reinforce workshop learning. I take great pride in having seen the contributions LEAD participants make to their communities and their professions. Each year I hear from successful LEAD participants that the skills they learned at the LEAD and the great friends they made in the program have served them very well. I look forward to welcoming you to the LEAD 2014 at the opening function.
