young leadership

I am a big believer in fostering leadership among the young. Leadership is an important community attribute and involves the ability to inspire, communicate, motivate, represent and empower those who lead. These qualities should be recognised and celebrated in the youth of today. In 2015 I launched the Queensland Young Leadership Recognition Program and invited schools across Queensland to nominate students who have demonstrated leadership excellence. In response I personally signed and distributed ‘congratulatory letters and leadership recognition certificates’ to some 20,000 students across Queensland. The program is continuing and will be delivered on an annual basis.


The 2016 Queensland Young Leadership Recognition Program is now open and all schools across Queensland are invited to participate. To find out more, please contact my office. I look forward to personally congratulating our leaders of the future.
