This year the highly regarded LEAP academy will run from the evening of Friday 21st September to the afternoon of Sunday 23rd September 2018.
Now in its seventh year, the programme will give the opportunity for aspiring leaders to become better leaders, through the high quality training delivered, and the chance to reflect on how personality styles impact on so much of what we do, and how we interact with others.
Personal development is one of the core areas of opportunity offered within JCI and we believe in developing the leadership skills of our members, so they have the confidence and authority to make a real difference in their business, their community and their personal life.
As opposed to TV shows, like Dragon’s Den, Mock Boardroom isn’t just for people who want to practice pitching for investment, but also for people who want to practice presenting new policies or ideas to a room full of senior decision-makers and receive feedback from the people usually on the receiving end of those presentations on what they are doing well and how they could improve. It’s also an opportunity for audience members to ask our panel questions about what to expect and how to prepare for board-level presentations and discussions.
- Hear successful business leaders share their expertise on how to persuade senior decision-makers
- Listen to bold pitches from aspiring business leaders and see how they fare under scrutiny
- Meet and network with London-based professionals across mutliple industries from tech, banking and advertising to law, healthcare, and public policy
6.30 – 6.40: introductions from the Great Debaters Club and JCI London
6.40 – 7.30: presentations and feedback from the panel
7.30 – 8.00: open Q&A with the audience
8.00 – 9.00: post event social in a pub on High Holborn
- Raphael Joseph, Managing Director and Global Head of Presales Engineering at Kaltura.
- Nick Iyegbe, Senior Business Risk Manager and Transformation Lead at HSBC

WE INVITE YOU TO JOIN US FOR A WEEK PACKED WITH CONTENT, ACTION AND IMPACT
All JCI members are focused on personal development or business networking, some join to help their local community or for international networking. JCI mission states, to create positive change among local, national and international member. Each person’ s contribution adds something to the many great projects we carry out within our chapters locally. Together, all those projects create JCI’ s significant footprint of structural change throughout the world. Wouldn’t it be great if we could enlarge our footprint by joining forces inside and outside JCI? The impact we could be able to generate if we unite all sectors of society would be enormous. For the 2018 JCI World Congress in Goa, we will work with government agencies, businesses, and local communities to create an innovative and challenging program. A program which provides everyone with the means to multiply his or her impact. Not only during this congress, but in their own country and within their own community. A program that of course also makes sure that everyone will have an unforgettable experience in Goa. Together, WE COME, WE LEARN, WE DO!
The 2018 JCI World Congress at Goa (India) will be an event people want to be part of; active members, senators, alumni, and even non-members! Why? For the world-class speakers, for the fantastic company visits, for the famous Goan parties.
There will be plenty of opportunity for participants who prefer to divide their time over leadership content, attending JCI official meetings, tourist outings, parties and sports. Our program will have an official JCI program like the General Assembly, official JCI Courses and public speaking and debating contests, but also a Global Village Party, tourist trips to major Goan attractions, as well as company visits and a trade show. We will use new technologies to facilitate the congress wherever possible and useful.

The 3-day conference will feature keynote speakers, training sessions, public speaking competitions and informal networking events. The conference’s theme, ‘Future You,’ is based on the idea that attendees will gain at least one experience or skill that their future self will thank them for. The programme will include all of the key elements of a JCI UK National Convention. This will include the TOYP awards, Friday night social (Including the Extempore competition), Morning Show, Debating and Public Speaking competitions, and National Council. There will also be a selection of alternative sessions to attend, including keynote speakers and training. We will then celebrate the culmination of 2018’s hard work at the gala dinner and awards.
