Now in its 54th year, the Loaned Executive program is a unique professional development opportunity for Geelong employees looking to further their career and give back to our community.
Each year the Loaned Executive team plays a pivotal role in the success of the Foundation’s Workplace Giving Program.
Following 2 days of training and preparation (including understanding the local need and the work
being undertaken to address it), the Loaned Executives set out on an 8-week journey presenting to local workers including their work team/ organisation and encouraging them to sign up to the Foundation’s Workplace Giving program; as well as ensuring that our 200 participating businesses and close to 4,000 donors are thanked and updated on the impact of their donations.
The Loaned Executive program provides:
- A fantastic opportunity to network
Meet like-minded employees from all sorts of work environments and gain exposure to a range of organisations within the wider Geelong region
- Professional Development Skills including public speaking, sales techniques, and teamwork, as well as overall growth in confidence
- Awareness of the issues affecting the wider Geelong community, including the iconic Seeing Is Believing Tour and in-training presentations. The Foundation also invites all participants to take part as a Community Grant Review Panelist, an opportunity to gain a deeper understanding of the need in our community.
With alumni of over 1,800 past participants, this iconic program is a must-have on your resume for anyone who works in the wider Geelong!
