Driving Change - MBA in an evening

  • One Roof Women 77-79 City Road Southbank, VIC, 3006 Australia (map)

Join us for an evening of learning-by-doing with Sam Haywood. Who will share some practical insights from completing Seth Godin’s digital altMBA program.

The what?


The altMBA is an online leadership and management workshop.

Founded in 2015 by bestselling author Seth Godin, the altMBA uses digital tools like Slack, WordPress and Zoom to engage more than 100 students in an intense four-week process. In 2016, students from 27 countries worldwide participated, with more students being added each session.

Want a taste, of what to come? Sure you do, you can watch this guy blabber on about a thing.

Come join Sam for a brief two-hour session, as he provides a brief primer on how to do the work that matters. During this interactive session, he will showcase the principles and his take on the AltMBA8 cohort he joined in 2017 (so it’s totes fresh in his mind)

What’s gonna happen?

Session (The Breakdown) -
A simple three-part approach to every situation:
6:00PM - Rock Up
6:15 - 6:45PM - See what’s going on. Learn to notice. Determine where the assets are, the limits, the worldviews.
6:45 - 7:15PM - Assert what you seek to do. Tell a story that resonates. Make your claim, “here, I made this.
7:15PM - 8:00PM - Change the system, the rules, the people around you. All good work revolves around change. If you’re not seeking to change something, no need to go to work today. But we hope you will.

The even more important - FAQ’s

Why are you doing this?

A key part of it is our commitment during the AltMBA is to pass that way of thinking forward even (especially) for people who don’t have the time, resources or inclination to actually be a part of the formal program.

What do I need to bring?

Yourself, a project idea (it can be big or small) and the ability to learn.

Where does the money go?

All profits will be given to YGAP - since they are some good people doing good things.

What are my transport/parking options for getting to and from the event?

One Roof Melbourne, has limited parking. Best bet is to take public transit via Flinders St (since it's a brisk 5 minute walk)

How can I contact the organiser with any questions?

Direct your emails, telepathy or carrier pigeons to

What's the refund policy?

Not satisfied, we'll happily refund your cash money in full.
