The 2020 AmCham Academy

The Academy provides talented junior executives with relevant and engaging seminars on career development best practices, peer-to-peer networking, and dialogue with senior executives from industry-leading companies. The AmCham Academy will help tomorrow’s leaders develop the skills, knowledge, and connections needed to be global pacesetters in the modern business world.
About the Academy
The Academy consists of a series of 12 events throughout the year. Each month, the rising stars of AmCham companies gather for a learning and networking opportunity.
The AmCham Academy is a program designed to tap into the rising leaders of your organisation. Through interacting with major American and Australian corporate leaders and government officials, this program will give insights, exposure to new ways of thinking, and expand networks.
To be a successful business leader has always meant the ability to access information, process that information, and act on that information before your competitors do. The hyper-connected and rapidly evolving markets of today mean that it is ever more important to participate in lifetime education and network building so that your staff can anticipate what is the next thing that will impact your business. The AmCham Academy will help tomorrow’s leaders develop the skills, knowledge, and connections needed to be global pacesetters in the modern business world.
