L.E.D Talks focus on sparking conversations around leadership, education and development. Rather than a lecture series, the talks are designed to be interactive and engaging, encouraging attendees to reflect, explore and perhaps even challenge the speaker’s ideas through facilitated discussion.
Student Engagement Manager, Marie-Jo Wilson, says the exciting initiative gives students from a range of backgrounds the opportunity to explore their own leadership capabilities.
“The talks will appeal to students who want to engage with current thinking about leadership and expand their own personal leadership behaviours.”
Carefully selected University of Auckland alumni will share their own philosophies, challenges, successes and experiences with attendees.
“Our speakers are a diverse range of alumni, who are current leaders, and will each address a relevant theme,” says Marie-Jo.
The second and final talk for 2015 is themed ‘Persuasion, negotiation and influence without authority’, with speakers Nicola Legat (publisher and editor) and Shay Wright (Māori Development for Icehouse).
L.E.D Talks are open to all current University of Auckland students. Registration is essential - click the button below to register.
