Key dates: registrations by 21 March 2023, with option for early start with the online Exec Insights sessions from 15 February 2023 (but available as recordings too). Other dates in the EI-ECS flyer

Key parts of the Early Career Stream include: 

  • Participate in 10x 30 minute sessions with industry execs on strategic challenges and opportunities, with Q&A (online Executive Insights sessions)

  • View live online ~4 hours of presentations by mid career future leaders in response to the Exec’s key challenges (via webinar)

  • Access to 10 written Board Briefs from mid career emerging leaders, including skills needed to address the strategic challenges

  • Support to self-assess skills linked to the Briefs and to create a personal development plan

  • Q&A session with the mid career teams on their Board Briefs and presentations

  • Access to an exclusive community of 100+ others all focused on the 2023 Exec Insights

About the program:

The Executive Insights Early Career Stream online program features 12x CEOs and senior executives from the API’s member organizations sharing high level insights on the challenges and opportunities facing the sector and the methods and mindset to use when developing solutions (and lessons from their own experiences).

Early Career Stream participants will join the community of 100+ other participants in the Exec Insights program including those from the API Summer School and Powerful Women Leadership Program. EI-ECS participants will gain from the high-level insights of Executives and the linked perspectives of mid career operational leaders, and access specific guidance on the skills that will be needed for the future.

After hearing fromn the 10x Execs, additional analysis of the issues is completed by ~50 mid-career power sector leaders who attend the API’s annual Summer School 2-week residential course (in May 2023) after participating in the Exec Insights online sessions.


These Summer School participants will work in small groups at the School to dig deeper into the issues raised by the Execs and then share their responses to the issues in written Board Briefings and verbal presentations. Their analyses will include insights on the knowledge and skills needed to respond to the strategic challenges and opportunities identified by the Executives.

Early Career Stream participants will have access to the presentations (online, live and on-demand) and reports, and online Q&A sessions with the teams from the Summer School.  They will be guided through a self-assessment of their capabilities and crafting of a personal skills development plan linked to the Executive Insights topics and the insights from the Summer School projects.
