Between 7 and 9 July 2017, two of our board members, Vicky Biggs and Phoebe Benta, travelled down to Birmingham to attend JCI UK’s Leadership Excellence in Action Programme (better known as the LEAP Academy).  LEAP provides personal development opportunities to empower young people to create positive change within themselves and train tomorrow’s leaders today. 

Both Phoebe and Vicky graduated from the LEAP Academy.  Here is what Vicky had to say about the weekend…

“When I joined the JCI Manchester board in December 2016, our President Simon Anderson said to me that if I was only able to go to one JCI UK training event this year, I should definitely go to LEAP because it would transform my life!  It is fair to say therefore that I had high expectations going into the weekend and I was not left disappointed!  LEAP offered theoretical and practical training on leadership skills, personalities, methods and things like working in a team and learning how to delegate.  The LEAP weekend stretched my capabilities and pushed me outside my comfort zone.  However it has left me eager to take the next step in my leadership journey and I am excited to see what I can achieve both at work and within JCI.”

“I would also encourage anyone who is interested in developing their leadership skills to attend the LEAP Academy.  To date, it is the best JCI training event I have attended.  Lastly, I would like to thank Jo Mackfall and the rest of the LEAP team for organising such a fantastic weekend.”
