Our Community Leaders

Great Australian Leaders in Focus



This initiative has been created by Our Community to highlight community leadership in Australia.

Interviews with some of Australia's greatest community leaders appear in Our Community Matters, a free monthly community sector newsletter that is distributed to tens of thousands of community organisations across Australia.


Each interview is designed to excite and stimulate discussion on the important elements of leadership as well as providing some personal insights that can serve as lessons or guides for other younger and emerging leaders.

Leadership - like any other skill for a community leader - is about constant improvement and a constant search for new and better ways to be able to guide your community organisation or to be able to get a message across to a wider audience.


We are very grateful for the many Australian community leaders who have agreed to take part in this series and we hope it enlivens discussion, debate and directions on what is the true meaning of community leadership.
