2024 Senior Women Leaders’ Delegation to China

Locations: Beijing, Shanghai, Chengdu and Hangzhou

Ready to develop your leadership by broadening your horizons and expanding your perspective?

Our 2024 Leading Women Delegation to China promises to be an experience like no other.

Our exclusive trip to China for women in executive and board roles is your ticket to professional and personal growth. From 7-13 September 2024, we’ll explore the business landscape, immerse ourselves in Chinese culture, and forge lasting connections.

Why China?

China continues to hold a prominent position in Australia’s economic landscape. As of the latest Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) census data, it remains our largest trading partner. In 2024, China remains the world’s second-largest economy in nominal GDP and the largest in purchasing power parity. This data reaffirms the enduring significance of the “Asian Century” for Australians.

The inaugural China International Import Expo exemplified China’s commitment to international engagement in Shanghai in November 2018. This event attracted participation from numerous countries, regions, international organizations, and enterprises, resulting in substantial trade agreements totalling $57.83 billion. 

Regarding demographics, the latest ABS census data indicates a significant number of Chinese visitors, with 1.39 million recorded in the year ending February 2022. Additionally, the 2016 Census highlighted that over 1.2 million people of Chinese ancestry now call Australia home. 

In 2024, China’s dynamic landscape continues to hold appeal and opportunities for exploration. Join us on this journey to engage with China’s evolving economic and cultural landscape and understand how this major world player will shape our shared future.

Mission Outcomes

Gain knowledge, insight and ideas
Play a leadership role in strategic conversations and decisions

To be a senior business leader in Australia without a deep understanding of China is a significant knowledge gap. That is why the first goal of this mission to provide knowledge, insight and ideas that delegates can employ immediately to enrich strategic conversations, drive better decisions and spark ideas.

Gain empathy for the Chinese people
Build stronger, more productive relationships  

Understanding another’s perspective is a key leadership skill.  You don’t have to agree on every point but recognising different perspectives in conversations enables us to hear and react to things very differently.  This is why understanding what is important to China and the Chinese people is a key goal of this mission. An added benefit is the chance to build relationships with others on the mission with you.

Deal with difference
Be future ready

This mission aims to help you work out your own beliefs, values and personal biases. It might be confronting at times causing reflection about how you approach and understand difference. In today’s VUCA world (volatile, unclear, complex, ambiguous) breakthrough ideas are discovered by diverse teams. Broad perspectives, experience and problem-solving methods are needed. A key goal therefore is to open you up to new possibilities and experiences encouraging a more open mind when it comes to who you include and how you approach things.
