Welcome to our Regional E-News

Leadership Development Program

Are you interested in furthering your leadership skills this year, or know someone who is an up and coming leader in your community? The Eyre Peninsula Leadership Development Program might be that nudge you’ve been waiting for.

 Regional Development Australia Eyre Peninsula, in conjunction with Champions Academy, is offering an exciting new development opportunity to EP locals in 2023. Over a six month period, participants will get to work with leading mentors and coaches to take their personal development and community leadership to a new level.

If this sounds like you or someone you know, contact tamsin.scholz@rdaep.org.au for more information.

EP Brand Launch, Save the Date!

Following extensive consultation, brand agency Fuller have recommended a new tourism brand positioning for the Eyre Peninsula, as such the project is approved to move to the design phase. 

Be sure to save the date for the big reveal. This is an event not to be missed! Due to the number of stakeholders and dignitaries expected at the event, it will be held in Port Lincoln. It is hoped with sufficient notice those from further afield can pool together to travel to be part of this momentous occasion. Anyone involved with tourism marketing activity on the EP is strongly encouraged to attend the full day of marketing workshops on the 30th of March.

Along with the recent development of the Eyre Peninsula Marketing Plan, this is an exciting time for our region, and presents an opportunity to celebrate what makes us unique, and to attract our best visitors with a strengthened brand positioning.

More info will be shared by RDAEP soon.
