Ambulance Victoria Public Affairs Manager James Howe has been named the 2011 recipient of the Manager Upskill scholarship.
James is 29 years old, based in Victoria and has been a member of the APESMA since 2010.
He's pursuing a double masters degree, adding a Masters of Management (Strategic Foresight) to his current MBA studies at Swinburne University.
James said of the professional development opportunity: “The addition of the Strategic Foresight stream will strengthen my skill set and provide me with a strong theoretical basis to incorporate into my work challenges. In developing this area of expertise I will be able to expand my career prospects from that of a communications practitioner to become a broader organisational influencer.”
