Connection: Newday Leadership Summit 2024

Event description

At Newday Summits, we love to do things differently. If you know us already, you’ll be looking forward to this year’s unique blend of festival, wellbeing retreat and world-class conference. 

Our Summit’s high calibre program of brilliant speakers and activators will be augmented with many other sensory delights, including opt-in massage; music and art therapy; physical activities (like yoga and kung fu from recent years); our popular pop-up book and gift shop; and of course, delicious food and drink. 

So many people hear about our Summits after they’ve happened and wish they made the commitment to come. Whether you are an aspiring, emerging or established leader from the government, corporate, education, or not-for-profit sector, we invite you to join us. You can also join us even if you are not a leader. We welcome everybody to a Newday Summit.

Why the Summit is a must-attend event

Newday Summit 2024 will be:

  • a genuine embrace of diverse perspectives from many different leaders, including First Nations’ cultural knowledge
  • an outstanding leadership development opportunity (with follow-up resources sent to every participant)
  • a chance to network with leaders from almost any sector you can imagine (and the option to stay behind to share a drink or two)
  • a memorable way to thank your teams, your board members or your clients for another year of work together
  • a wellbeing day (with many options for physical activity) 
  • a chance to reset and reenergise for the final two months of the year
  • a demonstration of how celebrating diversity and inclusion brings leadership perspectives to life (we cater for all abilities)
  • fun, joyful and uplifting
  • an experience that could change your life (we’ve heard this from many people over the years).

An inspired new partnership

We see boundless opportunities to embrace ‘inspired leadership for the greater good’. That’s why we’re proud to announce an exciting new partnership with AFL Max – a spirited organisation bringing Active, Fun Learning (AFL) to leadership and education. 

AFL Max has an amazing venue for our Summit that is full of stimulating spaces and activities to explore mind-body connections alongside the powerful keynote speakers and delightful activations we always bring to every Newday Summit. More than 20,000 students enjoy this venue each year and we can hardly wait to bring it to you and hundreds of other grown-ups in our diverse community of leaders. Let's make learning active and fun!

We have plenty more to share about who will be bringing inspiration to our stage and spaces on 31 October. We can hardly wait!
