Executive education program future-proofs executives in a volatile and uncertain world

20 June 2018

We’re living in revolutionary times.

In an era of unprecedented technological disruption, rapid economic and social change, and global competition for talent, it’s never been more critical to understand the forces that will impact our organisations in the future.

We must challenge ourselves with new global insights and perspectives, different ways of thinking and evolved ways of working.

Cultivating an entrepreneurial mindset and abilities is key to thriving in this competitive and fast-changing world.

The Australia-Israel Chamber of Commerce, in collaboration with Tel-Aviv University, has recently launched an innovative executive education program.

The DeepDIVE Executive Education Program is for senior business leaders who want to harness disruption and drive innovation in their organisations, drawing on the lessons from the ‘Start-up Nation.’

The program comprises a series of live lectures from Israeli academic and business leaders, presented on the ground in Australia via teleconference. Face-to-face group forums provide an ideal opportunity for attendees to network and share learnings.

The first cohort of senior executives has found enormous value in the program.

Kevin Farrugia, Head of Improvement (People & Culture) Perpetual, said [DeepDIVE] “is a very informative and eye-opening program…from the insight into entrepreneurship in Israel and then hearing from some of the world's best innovation leaders, and seeing this all come to life by hearing real stories. This program is a must for any budding entrepreneurs or anyone who is interested in establishing innovation and capability build in their organisation.”

Rowena Rees-Poole, Executive Director Healthcare – Client Coverage Group, Commonwealth Bank of Australia found the program “fascinating. Different ways of thinking. Gained a greater awareness of how Israeli companies, through their entrepreneurial spirit, have carved a niche in creating global businesses, outside of the big tech giants. Then in the face-to-face sessions, we discussed how to bring the international perspective back to our side of the world in Australia. Looking to share key findings with my work colleagues.”

Graduates receive a micro-qualification from Tel Aviv University’s Coller School of Management.

In addition, the program offers participants an unrivalled range of benefits including:

  • Privileged access to the unique thinking and culture that continue to make Israel a frontrunner in global innovation and entrepreneurial success
  • A strong understanding of the plethora of technologies that are changing the world
  • In-depth knowledge and actionable insights in strategy, innovation, intrapreneurship, digital transformation and disruptive technologies
  • Valuable networking opportunities and additional insights from face-to-face group forums
  • Invaluable global perspectives on many of the key challenges confronting Australian business today

The first intake is about to graduate, and the AICC is taking enrolments for the next semester (3 July – 20 November 2018.)
