AIM turns spotlight on Tasmania

Thursday, September 11, 2014

The AIM Group’s Board of Directors last month met in Tasmania and used the visit as an opportunity to reaffirm the Institute’s commitment to the business community in the apple isle.

The event was a great opportunity for Tasmanian Members and stakeholders to hear personally from AIM Chief Executive Officer Daniel Musson FAIM and AIM Chairman Grant Dearlove FAIM on the exciting developments for AIM, both in Tasmania and nationally.

AIM CEO Dan Musson FAIM said the opportunity to meet with Tasmanian Members and local business owners was invaluable.

"This is an exciting point in the AIM Group’s history and I look forward to further developing some productive and successful partnerships with Tasmanian organisations," Mr Musson said.

"Our mission is to be the first port of call for business, management and leadership development in Tasmania and by leveraging the success we have built Australia wide I am confident in our ability to be a trusted career partner for managers and leaders at every stage of their career journey."

The AIM Group Board visit to Tasmania follows a recent address from the Royal Australian Airforce Wing Commander Deborah Phillips and Royal Australian Navy Commander Stacey Porter to AIM Fellows and Tasmanian Regional Committee Members.

AIM Tasmania State Manager Julie Boulter said that Cmdr Phillips and Cmdr Porter’s candid discussion about the importance of mentoring in their careers was timely and in line with AIM’s announcement of a national mentoring program.

"They both spoke about the importance of meaningful investment in career education and training which echoes the current sentiment of many businesses I’ve spoken to recently in Tasmania," Ms Boulter said.

"Although we have had a low profile in Tasmania in previous years, local businesses and organisations have recognised that AIM suits their needs incredibly well for providing collaborative and customisable training options.

"From the conversations I have had with current and prospective clients, many of them are impressed by the breadth and depth of options available and this will only improve with the introduction of the new national suite of courses and programs."
