A word from our Patron

His Excellency the Honourable Hieu Van Le AC, Governor of South Australia
The Leaders Institute of South Australia exists to develop wiser leaders for South Australia – something that I believe is never more relevant than today. It is for this reason that I am particularly pleased to be closely associated with the Institute. We face many complex economic, environmental and social challenges that can only be tackled with great vision, creative thinking and courageous leadership.

In particular, the Institute’s Governor’s Leadership Foundation (GLF) Program brings together a diverse group of South Australian leaders to deepen their self-awareness, their understanding of the complex issues facing our society, and their engagement in tackling these issues. This extraordinary program, as well as others, measurably increases our leaders’ ability to embrace and navigate complexity with greater wisdom for better outcomes.
–His Excellency the Honourable Hieu Van Le AC, Governor of South Australia
