Future Focus Group Alumni Network

Future Focus Group Alumni Network of informed leadership inspires graduates to continue making a contribution to our city.

Connecting Melbourne's leaders

The Future Focus Group Alumni Steering Group has chosen a new location for its first 2017 event. Informal drinks will take place at Fratelli Fresh in May for Alumni and current participants to connect.

Future Focus Group brings talented people together to develop their skills, connections and, ultimately, be better-positioned to lead. There are now over 400 members of the Alumni Network spread throughout a cross-section of organisations in Melbourne and beyond.

Together with alumni patron, Jack Smorgon AO, graduates of the program remain involved in the Committee’s activities and the Future Focus Group via their cohort's Alumni Ambassador and the Alumni Network.
