Previous 10 New Leaders

Since its launch over 6 years ago, the 10 New Leaders Program by Dame Leadership has been instrumental in creating and nurturing a community of emerging leaders. The program was initiated as a means to give back to the community and enable the next generation to become better leaders who could create a positive impact on the world. We are proud to have had several cohorts of leaders who have successfully completed the program and have continued to grow and excel in their careers. We would like to thank them for their invaluable contribution to the program.

Join the exclusive community of emerging leaders and take your career to new heights by applying for the prestigious 10 New Leaders Program.
