Investing in Our People with Harvard Business School

Investing in Our People with Harvard Business School

Five Australian CEO’s, including our own Pippa Hallas, have teamed up to offer their teams a unique learning opportunity - an exclusive 6 month course with Boris Groysberg, Professor of Business Administration at Harvard Business School. Harvard Business School is America’s oldest and most prestigious business school and Professor Boris Groysberg is one of the best in Leadership and Management. The learning approach is via case study learning, utilising relevant real life examples and also teaching how to breakdown complex situations using innovative concepts and frameworks.

“As CEO’s, we are 5 years into studying a unique MBA from Harvard Business School. We have all personally gained so much from the education to better our businesses, mindsets and own lives that we wanted to bring the opportunity to our Australian leadership teams. One of the most amazing parts of being a CEO is to support the growth of our people, open their minds to new experiences, concepts and ways of thinking, which will hopefully leave a positive impact on their lives, both personally and professionally. With the boarders shut, and the acceleration of online learning, there was no reason that we couldn’t bring this course to our people in Australia. We have worked with Professor Groysberg to bring a bespoke, relevant curriculum, to bring our teams the best and latest information.


Across the 5 participating companies there are 110 managers around Australia enrolled in this course, held by Boris Groysberg, Professor of Business Administration at Harvard Business School, which focuses on Leadership and Management. The pandemic has put an increased pressure on Leaders and Managers in all businesses and the need to build great Managers in your business is more important than ever before. At Ella Baché we are committed to offering a flexible working model, and therefore we need to educate and provide the tools and framework to our managers so they can be the very best in navigating this new world. I hope my Managers will take away not only the latest and most relevant tools and frameworks but also a new approach and mindset to business and their personal lives. The content is Leadership and Management, so it will cover such topics as Vision, Strategy, Purpose, Implementation, Decision Making, People Management, Accountabilities, Ownership and Empowerment, all in the relevant content in this new world we are operating in.” – Pippa Hallas, CEO Ella Baché
