About

BDO is the fifth largest full service accounting and advisory firm in the world. In Australia they have more than 160 partners and over 1,300 people providing tax. Impact worked with BDO to design a practical yet inspirational development programme for emerging leaders.

The Apex Leadership Development Program in Australia was developed as a result of an initial directive from the Executive Committee to design a practical yet inspirational development program for the emerging leaders. The Team worked in close partnership with Impact Australia on the leadership journey and The Talea Group on business development to design and deliver the Apex Program.

The Apex program combines Impact’s current thinking on leadership and The Talea Group’s experience in business development to enhance organisational performance coupled with lots of practical experience, tools and techniques. The multi-modular program included 360° feedback, diagnostics, cross-functional business projects, experiential projects and learning reviews.

"Throughout the program learning was created through integrating experience with theory and drawing practical conclusions. Feedback to individuals about the effectiveness of their leadership and business development actions ensured that the learning was relevant, leading to lasting behavioural change in the workplace." - Afroditi Bousnakis, National Head of Learning & Development
