The AmCham Global Leadership Academy is a national program exclusively for high-potential corporate leaders in Australia. Every participant must be nominated by their CEO or Chairman.

This unique 12-month leadership program consists of 10 industry workshops facilitated by leaders in their fields and an opening and closing ceremony at prestigious venues.

Company leaders are invited to identify and nominate talented up and coming executives to learn best practices from senior executives from industry leading companies. Relevant and engaging seminars focus on global affairs, best business practices, personal career development, networking, and their own organisation’s place and relevance in the world. AmCham always emphasises building relationships and partnerships and expanding professional networks.


In 2022 the program will be offered in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Adelaide, Perth and Canberra.

Testimonials from Academy Alumni

'Coming from a background in politics and government, the corporate world does not often coincide with Canberra. The Academy has provided invaluable opportunities to connect and converse with interesting people in a range of industries outside my own. I did not expect to find myself in a ‘training program for high-potential corporate talent,’ but the lessons in leadership translate across all workplaces and I have found each Academy session to be applicable in some way to my own career.' - Josh Edwards, Office of Melissa McIntosh MP | Federal Member for Lindsay
