Youth Leadership Conference 2016

Written by Editor’s Picks, News, Student Life

Australia is ranked in the top 10 places for entrepreneurship and opportunities due to a multicultural living environment and the open migration policy of the government.  According to international rankings released last week, Australia is the second best place in the world to be for female entrepreneurs.


More and more young local and international university or high-school students are starting to establish their own start-up business and are taking leadership positions in numerous clubs, societies or non-profit organizations in Australia.

However, many people have given up their dreams and passion for taking a lead because they are struggling to find the right person to ask for help when facing hardships and challenges during their journey.

Especially with international students, some of them have great time-management and problem-solving abilities to help them become amazing and charismatic leaders; but they are lacking confidence and are shy because of their backgrounds; even with “fluent” and “proficient” English speaking capability.  They might miss out on the chance to find themselves and enjoy their time while studying in Australia.


The Youth Leadership Conference 2016 hosted by the City of Sydney and ISLA (International Student Leadership Ambassadors) is a great chance for young leaders within New South Wales to seek professional and mental support,  with millions of dollars worth of advice and unexpected networks.

At the conference, participants have the chance to ask many questions to the panel (such as Nicole Lamb from Owlkeyme, Phil White from Fundamental, Simon Jankelson from The Human Sound Project, Thea Soutar from Youth Food Movement and Pola Fanous from Insert Title or Organization).

There will be a fun dance performance from Owlkeyme and lots of free workshops to enhance your leadership skills.  Participants also receive a great lunch and sweet treats from the City Council.
