Empower, adapt and thrive with leadership expert Alison Earl 


Are you an early education leader seeking to enhance collaboration, cooperation, and responsibility within your team? Join us for a transformative webinar with internationally acclaimed leadership expert, Alison Earl. 

🔥 Our recent face to face masterclass with Alison was a sold out event, with many names still on our waiting list. To meet the demand, we've decided to run a live webinar version of the training. 🔥

Alison brings a blend of dynamic teaching and deep empathy, and understands the leadership challenges facing small and community providers. Under her guidance, you'll learn to: 

  • Adopt a visionary leadership approach. 

  • Manage stress effectively, preventing burnout. 

  • Cultivate a resilient stress response for better decision-making. 

  • Foster a culture of collaboration and transparency within your team. 

  • Navigate challenges with open communication, reducing resistance and fostering innovation. 

If you only attend one professional development session this year, this is the one you should attend. The leadership training Alison provided was excellent, I am still using her strategies with my team 12 months down the track.

Alison's primary goal is to empower individuals to master their reactions to change, uncertainty, and stress. Join us for a transformative experience that promises not just knowledge but a ripple effect of positive change throughout your organisation.

🔖 AMAZING VALUE: This event would normally be priced at over $400. CELA is subsidising this session so that more people can afford to benefit from Alison’s expertise. Tickets start at just $95 for a single ticket and $190 for your entire team.
