Leaders of future
FIFTY future leaders of South Australia’s defence sector are being guided to grow and enhance the industry, worth billions of dollars to the economy.
AFL Services Pty operations manager Adam Levi, below, is among those in the SA Defence Industry Leadership program, which provides mentoring and training for workers to develop business skills.
Participants are nominated by their companies and mentored by defence alumni.
They receive an Advanced Diploma in Business Management, specialising in defence, through the Defence Teaming Centre at Mawson Lakes’ Innovation House. The eight-month course is overseen by the Deloittes Leadership Academy and is designed to encourage small-to-medium enterprises to try to exceed expected standards.
AFL Services has been a supplier to the Australian Defence Force for seven years and specialises in vehicle refurbishment. Chief executive Lindsay Scragg says the company is proud of Mr Levi’s achievements.
