Future Club Leaders

Diploma of Hospitality Management, Human Resources or Leadership and Management - Barringtons
In 2012, Barringtons and ClubsNSW combined to develop a tailored, industry-focused program that would mould and create the future CEOs/General Managers of the club industry. Rather than focus purely on management skills, this program aims to deliver leaders who will take the industry through the 21st century and deliver it safely and sustainably for future generations. With the aim that ‘changing just one person per club can change an industry’, this program focuses on the key issues of policy and government relations, networking with business and communities, delivering a culture of innovation and change, and understanding and managing media (especially social media), to the benefit of the club and its members.

Successful completion of the Hospitality Management program will provide participants with up to 50% credit at Southern Cross University towards a Bachelor of Business in International Hospitality Management degree. The other qualifications provide up to 35% credit forward to the same degree.

Final Frontier
