University College, London

(see tabs above to learn more about the timetable of each day)

  • The Young Business Leader Programme is an all-encompassing two-day immersion into life as global business leader. The aims of the programme are as follows:

    1. Provide hands-on experience of the following cornerstone areas of business leadership: business strategy, marketing, rapid growth execution, and strategic technology implementation. (Day 1)
    2. Provide comprehensive training on the key skills that every CEO needs in order to excel: delivering powerful presentations, negotiation skills, how to influence others, building strong networks, and managing a team. (Day 2)

    Our objective is to coach ambitious 15-19 year-olds to gain a key competitive advantage over their peers when applying for the most sought-after jobs, or indeed in establishing their own business empires.

    At the end of the programme, there will be a panel question-and-answer session with leading executives across various competitive industries, including: retail, consultancy, investment banking and manufacturing. This will allow students to receive personal advice and hear inspirational anecdotes. The only pre-requisites to attending are strong ambition and a willingness to learn crucial, life-long skills.

    More importantly, participation in the programme will demonstrate to recruiters that you have a true commitment to developing yourself into a successful professional.

      Programme Fee: £350/student for both days. Places are limited. If 2 or more places are booked students receive a 10% discount. Enter code GROUPYBL at checkout to benefit from this.
