What the Program Provides

With thousands of young leaders working in many industries and throughout the Darling Downs, the Future Leaders are the go-to network for young professionals and business owners in our region. Future Leaders enables participants to develop strong networks that help further individual careers, forge friendships, encourage collaboration, empower upcoming young leaders, and overall strengthen the future of the Toowoomba business community. Quarterly ‘Future Leaders Connect’ events and the Mentor Program are cornerstone initiatives that form the basis of the annual Future Leaders program.


Included in Chamber Membership, all current members automatically gain access to Future Leaders for their young team members.

Individual Membership is available for those between the age of 18-35 involved in business or industry in the Toowoomba Region, not employed by a Chamber Member business.

Four Key Principles provide the framework for our Future Leaders

  • Encourage leadership and entrepreneurial spirit of our local young professionals and business owners;
  • Provide mentorship opportunities connecting Future Leaders with local business leaders;
  • Boost engagement and networking opportunities; and
  • Provide access to leading local and national speakers to connect with, learn from, and be inspired by!
