Participant stories

“I’m always looking for opportunities to reflect on where I’m at in my career, and this looked like a unique program that would give me more insights into my journey and career path. The experience brought me back into a good balance of sense of self and what I’m contributing, and where my future lies. It provides a great opportunity for people wondering what they should be doing, what they could be doing better or what they should do next and how to make the most of the next step. This questioning is a natural part of human life and this program really fills a need.”

Official Secretary to the Governor-General;
Chief Executive of Make A Mark Australia (EMBA ’13, Metamorphosis ’15)

“Metamorphosis was an incredible opportunity to take time and space and spend time thinking about 'what comes next.' Surrounded by beautiful places, creativity and the inspiring and engaging people who were in our cohort, I learnt so much. What has followed has been a year of enormous and positive change for me. I have reflected and thought often of that time, things said and discussed. I was challenged to think differently about my purpose and value and to apply new tools and thinking to my working life. I am changed for it.”
