WHAT IS QLEAD?
Since its foundation in 2001, Queen’s Leadership, Excellence and Development Conference has built a strong reputation within the Smith School of Business and in high schools across Canada. Every year, hundreds of inspired high school students apply to QLEAD to develop their leadership skills and gain a better understanding of the business world and university life.
This four-day virtual conference allows delegates to connect with one another and given our QLEAD alumni network, are able to remain connected long after. With the success of QLEAD 2019, our executive is excited and confident that QLEAD 2020 will be a remarkable experience.
QLEAD cultivates a collaborative environment that empowers young leaders to excel. Through exposure to engaging business challenges and networking opportunities, senior high school students can learn from other’s diverse perspectives and discover their leadership potential.
