Overwhelming. Challenging. Exciting. Memorable. The yLead experience pushed me to new heights, put me out of my comfort zone which ultimately helped my confidence, group bonding skills and ability to be a better leader.

School Leader, St Ursula’s College Toowoomba

This conference has given me the tools I need to be an effective leader. Before I arrived, I was looking forward to my new role as a leader, but wasn’t confident in my abilities to lead. This conference has been a positive experience to boost my confidence and belief in my abilities.

School Captain, Padua College Brisbane

I have worked closely in our leadership preparation at Burnside State High School for over 15 years and I have been consistently pleased and proud of our leadership teams with their commitment, enthusiasm, and level of engagement on the return to school after their experience at the conference.
