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

"Working with Impact can best be described as both enjoyable and an ideal partnership. We found them to be extremely creative with some of the most unique experiential learning available. Perhaps most importantly, we learned from and greatly admired all of their global staff. We found them to be flexible, insightful and extremely caring, committed to the personal development of our staff."

"The success of the Emerging Leaders Programme has exceeded my expectations. The content is relevant, the selection process is rigorous - and it delivers. We are seeing a clear increase in leadership capability within this talent population. This is now coming to fruition as we see more and more individuals who attend the programme going on to take on more demanding roles - be that within their current level or to more senior roles. The programme is recognised by our Executive Team as talent enabler."

"An overall culture change was needed to ensure that the leadership development solution offered by Impact, gained traction beyond the training days. Management behaviour change is critical to ensuring we are able to retain the right skill base to deliver new services in a rapidly changing media world. Coaching for Success, and its aligned leadership expectations are critical to
improving our managers, therefore our talent and then our service to audiences."
