Mantra Group’s Rising Stars took time out from their daily jobs last week to participate in the annual Rising Stars Development Week held at Mantra Legends Hotel on the Gold Coast.

From Corporate Reservations Managers to Digital Marketing Executives and Front Office Managers, the 20 Rising Stars – identified for their potential as future leaders in the Group – had a week-long schedule of activities and training designed to develop their leadership skills and to provide them with tools to grow their careers.

Aside from the training and professional development, a healthy dose of fun was also added in to the mix including dawn surfing and a trip to the high Treetop Challenge Centre at Mount Tambourine as well as reflection on personal growth plans.

Jeremy Mossman (GM 100 Exhibition Street) said the week was a unique experience that set foundations for their careers and personal development.

“Each session was extremely well thought out, from the tailored training sessions, to interactive discussions and morning energiser activities,”

                                                                                                           Jeremy Mossman.

The Group’s Executive Management team also played a key role in the week, led by CEO Bob East, attending panel interview sessions and meal breaks.

“Having time with the Executive team and being able to ask questions, both professional and personal was invaluable as it gave us a chance to understand their journey with the organisation,” said Santana Wicken, Mantra Group Corporate Reservations Manager.

The Rising Stars will now go back to their roles and continue their 12 month development plan in the workplace.
