Leadership AQDays

Leadership AQDay - Friday, December 5, 2014


High school students attend this popular one day event and discover from facilitators how to hone your leadership skills, and why with leadership comes responsibility. Learn about how well intended decisions can have unintended consequences. And, develop speaking and communication skills that will set you apart as a leader.


“Sessions were very helpful, I enjoyed that is was more of a conversation than a seminar." Now I can use this information to be a good leader.”

“Meeting new people and learning to be a better leader was the highlight of the day! The day was fun and entertaining."

“Both breakout session speakers were intriguing, interesting, informative and fun.”
