About Deloitte Leadership Academy
The Deloitte Leadership Academy was the brainchild of Tom Richardson, a Partner at Deloitte Australia. He recognized the need in himself to develop his leadership skills as his career progressed from being a subject matter expert in the accounting field to running and leading a business. Like many other executives, he found he had the technical skills but other areas of his knowledge such as talent management and delivering strategy at the enterprise level needed further refinement. The Deloitte Leadership Academy was his solution to this problem. The Leadership Academy is available in 14 countries through the Deloitte network and is now available for purchase online to individuals. We continue to add content, capabilities and leadership experiences to the service and will be launching in other countries over the coming years.
