What participants of the Ethos Forum have said when reflecting on the influence of the program on their careers.
"Reflecting after seven years since attending The Ethos Forum, my participation in this program came at a good time for me as I was at a point in my career, as an Associate Dean Research, where I needed to be taken to another level and this program delivered this ’in spades’. The Ethos Forum introduced me to new ways of thinking about research and partnerships plus it gave me a new understanding of how big data and social media can help achieve research outcomes. A key outcome of this program was to give me confidence in being able to lead and develop new ideas about how I am best as a leader. Throughout the program, excellent relationships developed within the diverse group; respect and confidentiality developed quickly. Seven years late I am still in contact with some of those I met on the Ethos Forum. I reflect on this program as providing an important step in my journey as an academic leader".

"While participating at the Ethos Forum was profoundly inspired by the calibre of the researchers who were my fellow participants. This encouraged me to think bigger and aim much higher with my career aspirations than I had previously considered. The Ethos Forum came at a good time for me as I was experiencing difficulties within the governance of my research grant and without the context and expertise of Mark Douglas combined with the honest and supportive discussions had within the group, I was able to successfully lead the grant to meet all its KPI's -something I did not think was possible at the start of the Forum. Looking back after four years the Ethos Forum was the first step in my appreciation of strong leadership and why it is so important when driving a strategy or asking for discretionary effort from staff".

"I did the Ethos program at the beginning of my new appointment as Head of School of Justice at QUT in 2012. It was perfect timing as it connected me to inspirational leaders and gave me the time out to focus on the development of my own leadership skills. It gave me the boost I needed to become a confident, resilient and authentic leader. It enhanced my capacity to prioritise, to reflect and to support my staff to develop their research careers.Importantly it encouraged perspective in the face of challenge. The program does not have a one size fits all recipe for leadership. Leadership is a journey not a destination. As I reflect six years later I feel the investment in developing my leadership through Ethos has bought an abundance of rewards. Not just for myself but for my school and faculty at QUT. In the past two years I have sent four of my staff to participate in the Ethos Forum”
