In October 2016 I had the privilege of attending the inaugural Oceania Nutrition Leadership Programme (ONLP) alongside 22 other early to mid-career nutritionists. The 10 day training stretched our boundaries, and enabled us to reflect on ourselves as developing nutrition leaders in our organisations, communities and countries.

This practical experience was important for development of new skills, trying new ways of leading and influencing, and to brainstorm ways to deal with real life situations in our workplaces and communities. Impacts of culture on leadership, influencing global policy, food systems and sustainability, big data, and cross-sector collaboration were other topics of focus.
