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 three-day virtual conference allows delegates to connect with one another and given our QLEAD alumni network, are able to remain connected long after. The conference will run on November 12-14! With the success of QLEAD 2020, our executive is excited and confident that QLEAD 2021 will be a remarkable experience.
