KINNECT talent pipeline flows with leadership graduates

People Stories 01 Dec 2022

KINNECT, has paid tribute to a dozen new ‘Emerging Leadership’ graduates from our mini-MBA program as the 2021 and 2022 cohorts come together for the first time.

KINNECT’s current and most promising new leaders have joined together in Brisbane for a special celebration to mark the conclusion of the 2022 Emerging Leadership Program (ELP).

Participants from 2022 joined graduates from the 2021 cohort at Capri by Fraser in Brisbane where they heard from guest speaker, Nick Bloor, Founder of the IVM Group.

KINNECT’s ELP helps employees to gain important leadership skills, and develop themselves personally and professionally to support their future career progression.

The 2022 ELP Graduates were:
  • Catherine Smith, Team Manager, Mascot
  • Kaitlan Barnham, Team Manager, Medical Support
  • Kerry Chiu, Lead Consultant, Melbourne
  • Lelayna Beverley, Team Manager, Customer Success
  • Tamsin Hearne, State Manager, WA
  • Elizabeth Patterson,  Team Manager, Woollongabba
  • Sara Czubek, Administration Support, Projects
  • Sarah Jefferies, AEP / Rehabilitation Counsultant, Nundah
  • Sima Gharibi, Rehabilitation Counsellor, Melbourne
  • Suzie Rigby, Psychologist, Gold Coast
  • Tarryn Both, Team Manager, Mackay
  • Tegan Kwon, Occupational Health Nurse, Cairns

The program was founded in 2020 by Chief Executive and MD, Kevin Conlon to help develop the next generation of leaders at KINNECT.

As KINNECT continues to grow we will help even more people.

“Investing in leaders and promoting from within has been part of the KINNECT Way for a very long time,” says Kevin Conlon. He continued: “We developed this program to help KINNECTers to get the skills they need to take the next steps in their career and it’s already paying dividends.”

“This year, we’ve been able to recruit internally for 15 leadership positions. This is the most ever and the majority of those promotions have come from this very program. The class of 2022 will add significantly to our pipeline of talent and we know they’ll go far.”

With lectures, workshops, special guest presenters, assigned reading, and group study, the ELP course covers a range of topics in depth over 12 months. This includes workplace culture, leadership, people recruitment, finance, operations, time management, discipline and execution, business goal setting, and technology.  In addition, participants are mentored by senior executives who act as advocates, coaches and problem solvers during the one-year program.

KINNECT has a well-established track record of promoting internally, with the majority of current executive leadership roles performed by staff who began their career with KINNECT.
