The Leadership Symposium is an annual affair to celebrate and showcase each student’s distinct experiences and achievements within the multi-year leadership certificate. It provides all graduands with an opportunity to hone their public speaking skills, through facilitation and group coaching sessions.
Each participant will distill and share their own leadership insights and reflections developed throughout their leadership certificate participation with the rest of the Yale-NUS community and guests.
The most recent Symposium was held on 4 March 2020 (Wednesday), 6 to 8pm at the Black Box Theatre.
Organised on 4 March, the 2020 Symposium featured 6 graduands and 2 other participants, and was attended by 30 other guests including Yale-NUS Faculty, staff and students. They were joined by Kei Franklin, a Leadership Certificate alumna from the Class of 2017, who shared her leadership journey and insights in her keynote remarks.
Graduands from the Class of 2020, and participants from the Class of 2021 and 2022 respectively also shared their unique leadership insights on “The Courage To Step Back”, “Embracing Discomfort”, and “Nurturing Self-Compassion” among others.
