- Female Leadership - LEAP
Leadership and Entrepreneurship Accelerator Programme
The LEAP programme develops business, entrepreneurial and leadership skills through launching social enterprise projects to target key global issues. International teams of students formulate their own ideas into a business pitch. Global experts act as coaches, mentors and guides. Finally they act as investors, ready to provide funding in a Dragon’s Den like final pitch.
One of the world's premier female leadership programmes.
" As a father of girls and founder of a female centric tech business I feel passionate about equal pay and opportunities for women, I was therefore honoured to take part in LEAP. The programme was inspirational." Aaron Chatterley, Founder of Feel Unique.
"The LEAP program has allowed me to expand my knowledge of not only the business world, but also the world. There are so many opportunities to learn about different cultures and make amazing friends along the way. Working in a team has helped me to learn communication, leadership, and determination. Along with this，getting the opportunity to listen and share ideas with all of the different speakers, along with the skills learnt, was invaluable. I would like to thank you for this opportunity and I am extremely grateful." Isabella, Bermuda Delegate 2019
