Kingborough Council has won the LG Professionals Regional final of the Australasian Management Challenge held in Launceston earlier this month. 

It is the second win for Kingborough Council having won the Tasmanian Regional final and National title back in 2015. Despite being up against some of the toughest contenders in an all-star line-up the Kingborough Quolls team impressed judges with their creativity, collegiate work ethic and well-rounded skills.

This year four Tasmanian teams from the City of Launceston, Kingborough Council, Break O’Day Council and a composite team of Northern Midlands Council, Meander Valley Council and West Tamar Council competed for the title.

The Challenge is a simulation-based team building, learning and networking program using real local government themes – the types of issues that a senior management team in a council would most likely face. The annual event is focused on problem solving, teamwork and leadership while allowing participants to hone their presentation skills by pitching their ideas to a panel of judges from the sector.  

The Kingborough Quolls will now go on to compete in the Australasian final being held in conjunction with the LG Professionals National Congress in Darwin on the 31 July.
