The Melbourne Tourism Leadership Program (MTLP) is a ground-breaking professional development program, giving people with a demonstrated interest in the tourism industry the opportunity to grow as leaders.
The vision for MTLP is to continue to develop leaders from across the visitor industry who have the passion and drive to provide ongoing leadership for Melbourne and Victoria. The primary focus will be on giving people the tools they need to be more effective leaders.
We thank our partners for their ongoing support to the program and look forward to working with them this year.
