EngNow - 360˚Leadership Training

Young Leadership Conference

The comprehensive Young Leadership Conference (YLC) provided participants with opportunities to attend various talks, seminars and experience sharing sessions about leadership development from successful, world renowned leaders in various walks of life.

The holistic programme was designed to seek input from young engineers, expectations from corporations on their needs in moulding their budding leaders, feedback from entrepreneurs on their needs from engineers, and suggestions from academia on how to enhance leadership training and development. A thorough 360 degree analysis was done to tailor make an all-round, two-day programme to suit the needs of today’s young engineers.

Held at the Hong Kong Polytechnic University, the Young Leadership Conference saw 35 profound local and foreign top managers of multi-national engineering companies, successful entrepreneurs, professional communicators and the Young Member Representatives of the IMechE international regions in four forums and five lectures, sharing with over 300 delegates their insights and invaluable experiences on becoming a successful/future leader.

Young members also played a key role in ensuring such a huge operation and logistic task ran smoothly. Venue set-up, registration, floor management, master of ceremony and overall co-ordination were all done by young members, as was the YLC abstract booklet, providing an opportunity for the young members to take charge and start towards their roles as leaders of the future.
