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.Student Council Coordinator, Burnside State High School
