Lead Without Being in Charge – Stories that Inspire [Leadership Week]

20/02/2020 @ 15:30 - 16:30

Open for everyone to attend! Registration not required.

Join Career Committee’s largest event to date! 5 speakers, 5 stories. A grand TEDx-like show, with stories that will inspire you.

One of the greatest myths of leadership is that you must be in charge in order to lead. Curious to discover the true art of leading, and eager to find out more about how you make a difference from where you stand?

During this event, we will give the floor to multiple speakers, all of which are here to show you that it is only up to you to carry out your vision and be that game-changer. Listen to their stories, let yourself be inspired, and leave the room with a grasp of how you can contribute, innovate and develop!

✔️ So, are you ready to conquer your team, study association, or the whole world while we’re at it? Join us and be inspired how you can lead without being in charge.
