The Career Committee proudly presents the first edition of our Leadership Week. We have speakers from all over the country, a mini “TEDx”-like show on Thursday, as well as alumni speed dating lined up for you!

Throughout the week, we organizes a number of workshops, training sessions and guest lectures, where you will be given introductory theory, as well as the opportunity to practice and hone new skills. Learn what it takes to become tomorrow’s leader!

With the exception of the speed dating event, all events are open to attend by students from any institution in the Hague of Leiden.
