The LeadNow! Programme

Overview

The LeadNow Event enables students to lead themselves, one another and groups. They discover they can lead, how they can lead, and when and where to lead. They more deeply understand their beliefs and how they relate.

Each subject is explored via stimulating presentations, experiential learnings, individual reflection and socialisation; enabling participants to develop their views. The structure is simple: after an introduction to leadership there are three modules: leading self, leading others and leading groups, and then a planning session.
