Every year we provide students with the opportunity to present to their peers at our ‘round table’ session, enabling students to increase their leadership skills and develop peer partnerships. If you would like to present either individually or as a group, pitch to us in 100 words or less a synopsis of your proposed presentation.
What students gained from attending the Student Leadership Symposium:

“Reassurance and knowledge that where you start doesn't necessarily dictate where you end up.”

“Knowledge, good food, ideas, new people to collaborate with, leadership award points and inspiration.”

“So much! I learnt that other people have the same doubts, fears, and passions that I do and that nothing is impossible.”

Networking with other student leaders that I had not had the opportunity to meet previously. Being inspired by other students.
