What you get

Leadership Skills

You will be training in deeply simulated scenarios where you will discover how to influence your immediate reaction to situations, how to manage a team with consideration of their personalities, goals, and limitations. How to make effective and timely decisions, respond to a crisis, mentor and counsel an individual and a team, improve your communication skills, verbal and physical. Emotional intelligence is ranked above intelligence quotient in what employers look for in a candidate.

Experiential Learning

Leadership training is 90% practical based, simulated in a foreign country context, designed to challenge you to adapt and illustrate resilience and stability under pressure. You will physically move about in a simulated foreign environment and be required to respond to issues as they present themselves to you over the course of the immersion.

Increased Employability

Completing a Project Everest™ Ventures Project is an impressive challenge, prospective employers search for indications of soft skills which are demonstrated exclusively through experience. Your position as a Team Leader elevates this statement. Employers want to see your ability to take responsibility, motivate yourself and others, project manage, communicate effectively, make decisions and solve problems, and work in a team structure. This also transfers to self-awareness, belief in capacity, resilience, preparedness, frugality, and the priceless ability to maintain humour during hardship.

Business Skills & Advanced Entrepreneurial Skills

Preparing you with a business mindset, you have access to personnel that have been working in or with startups for years. There is a heavy focus on preparing businesses for venture capital raising, lean startup methods, marketing, growth hacking and scaling up. This will all be taught to you in a manner which allows you to retain and apply this knowledge in a commercial and startup setting for both developing and developed countries. You will gain the confidence to start a business from scratch through a proven toolkit.

Development Support

Experienced facilitation and delivery by trainers who have extensive experience in-country and from the Australian Military. Your trainers have a combined 30+ years experience doing what they are doing and are geared towards making sure you trained beyond the level we expect of any person wishing to step into the role of a Team Leader. The support they offer you is unprecedented and probably unheard of throughout any other training you have experienced in this field.


Established over 5 years ago, we have struggled to find any other leadership training course that compares to ours. Set in a simulated foreign country, the 7 day experiential based immersive period is designed to build your emotional intelligence, resilience, adaptability and skills in business, leadership, entrepreneurship, innovation and crisis management.

Our training is tough and rigorous and enables you to feel first hand what it’s like to lead others in a foreign environment. It is designed to challenge you to work entirely outside your comfort levels and to equip you with the necessary tools for success. Our curriculum is generated by combining techniques and approaches from the Australian Military and leading business owners from across the globe. It is this unique combination approach that allows what you learn to be applicable to real-world contexts.

Through establishing a world-class open and supportive environment, our training is geared to facilitate the discovery of your particular style of leadership and to equip you with the right tools to succeed in multi-faceted business contexts.

If you meet a certain performance level throughout your training, you may be offered a position as a Team Leader with Project Everest™, seeing yourself lead a team of 4 – 10 students on a Social Venture Project for an early stage business.

Project Everest™ offers multiple pathways to progress past the level of Team Leader, ranging from Experienced Team Leader and Certified Experienced Team Leader, all the way to Experienced Senior Leader or Senior Consultant, depending on your strengths and interests.

The Leadership Training involves a 5-day intensive immersive training (Immersion), with additional Workshops run on a weekly basis post Immersion or an intensive 2-day workshop depending on your location.

Immersive Period Training

The Team Leadership Training is intense, challenging, and transformative. It will get you out of your comfort zone in an environment that is unexpected, turbulent, supportive and geared at your personal and professional development. All facilities and resources required are onsite, with time allocated between covering theoretical aspects of Leadership, bonding with the other Leaders in your cohort, and practical scenarios. Everything you learn is implemented, facilitated closely by Project Everest™ Ventures staff, trainers, and previous Leaders. The purpose of the Immersive Period Training is to get you ready to lead a real-time business venture, illustrating to you the importance of staying focused and having the ability to influence your team to drive towards one crucial goal.

We can provide a support letter outlining the value of the Training for students to apply for special consideration. We recognise there may be some overlap, it’s your responsibility to approach your subject coordinator and pitch the value of this training to allow for consideration, this has been done multiple times previously and has not been an issue.
