Emerging Leaders Programme

The BIM Emerging Leaders Programme is designed to deliver business and leadership upskilling to professionals in the catching, aquaculture and processing seafood sectors at all levels of scale.


What the programme offers

The programme offers participants the opportunity to transform into an effective leader, providing clear direction and guidance to avoid common pitfalls in your leadership journey.

You will develop an understanding of leadership styles and identify your own strengths and weaknesses as a leader. You will also develop the capabilities to lead and provide direction for key employees.

Who should attend?

The Emerging Leaders programme is available to all professionals transitioning into leadership positions in the seafood industry.


Faced with new and evolving responsibilities, emerging leaders need to learn new skills and gain more self-awareness in order to motivate, inspire and lead high-performing teams. In today’s increasingly digitised and interconnected world, boundaries are blurred, collaborations are more fluid and the pressure on businesses to be agile is ever increasing.
