Event Information

How would you train over 200,000 young Australians to be purposeful global citizens and leaders? To start, how would you design a rigorous model for building the requisite competencies? What pedagogical techniques would you deploy to ensure the students gain real mastery in these domains? And how would you make it available for free to all Australian schools and teachers?

Join Mehrdad Baghai, Co-founder, Chairman and CEO of High Resolves, the global leader in the design and delivery of learning experiences on citizenship and leadership, for a unique opportunity to hear the remarkable story of High Resolves. Mehrdad is a world-renowned strategy and leadership expert and is the author of three international management bestsellers. He is the chairman of Alchemy Growth, a boutique advisory firm. Previously, he completed a three-year term as an Executive Director of the CSIRO and before that, he was the co-leader of the worldwide growth practice at McKinsey & Company. Mehrdad earned an M.P.P. as a Kennedy Fellow at the Harvard Kennedy School, a J.D. with high honours at Harvard Law School, as well as a B.S.E. with highest honours at Princeton University.

Mehrdad will explain how an Australian not-for-profit captured the attention of major philanthropic organisations overseas with its groundbreaking work, and thus expanded into the United States, Canada, Brazil and China. We all know that building global citizenship and leadership mindsets and skills in students is at the heart of the FISO Improvement Model. Find out how you can tap into the breadth of this award-winning offering for students at your school.
