Renowned Professional Leadership Training Company to Enhance Presence in ACT

Updated: Aug 22, 2021

Dale Carnegie, the company that set the standard in transformative professional leadership training, announced today a strategic move in expansion to better serve individuals and organisations in Canberra.

Tony Bonanno, who has been involved with Dale Carnegie since his trainer certification in 1988 and most recently has been an executive coach and consultant with the company’s Sydney office, has been appointed the new Regional Director of ACT for the business.

“It’s a privilege to have the opportunity to share Dale Carnegie’s principles with others and put the broad range of frameworks into place as Regional Director,” said Bonanno. “Canberra has a thriving government and business community, and I’m proud to be a part of it. I'm looking forward to playing an even larger role in helping organisations with the broad range of leadership capabilities required to navigate the increasing complexity in the Public Service.”

Founded on Dale Carnegie’s groundbreaking principles for achieving success through human relations both in work and in life, the expansion will seek to support citizens and users to increase competitiveness and drive growth.

Prior to becoming Regional Director of Dale Carnegie ACT, Bonanno had a career in strategic business development, where he developed organisational sales teams via sustainable behaviour change. Additionally, he shares his insights and passion for serving others as member and board member for Rotary and through curating online podcast content. More recently, he accepted an appointment as a founding board member for the Be Unstoppable Foundation, a charitable organisation devoted to supporting positive psychology programs in the important arena of mental health support.

“The Dale Carnegie name is synonymous with professional and leadership development; we’ve earned that reputation with our ISO certification, global reach with over 9 million graduates and by working with partners who bring about transformational change in attitudes and behaviours that result in significant performance shifts.” said Jordan Wang, Managing Director at Dale Carnegie Australia. “Building on Tony’s successes in organisational development and executive coaching, our goal is for the ACT expansion to help more people and organisations than ever before, with a curriculum built on over 100 years of realising personal potential and elevating great leaders.”

Through a diverse training curriculum offered in-person or live online, Dale Carnegie continues to adapt to the ever-changing needs and challenges of today’s world by designing and implementing people, culture and learning and development initiatives. This includes engaging others to innovate, collaborate and create change, while building the skills needed to work productively, ethically, respectfully and inclusively in the workplace.

By changing people, Dale Carnegie believes therein lies the power to change organisations and communities.
