The Annual Leaders Gathering 2019
LeadMinds Africa is a non-profit organization in Uganda. It offers an annual leaders programme that seeks to identify the next generation of African leaders and equip them with the skills, knowledge and networks that will enable them to operate more effectively in their chosen spheres of influence.
LeadMinds Africa’s work was last year highlighted by the now-former President of the United States of America, Barack Obama during the Mandela Lecture in Johannesburg, South Africa. As a means to achieving their long-term goal of building strong, innovative and courageous African leaders committed to public service, with vision, ethics and the necessary skills to bring about change, LeadMinds Africa has organised yet another annual cross- country idea-sharing and networking event for high school and university leaders that will be hosted in Nakasongola District, Uganda at Ekitangaala Transformation High School from the 16th to the 19th of August 2019.
Annual Leaders Gathering
The three days of intensive leadership training that will run under the theme “Living a Life of Purpose”, will give participants an opportunity to
engage with African influential people in the areas of leadership, social sector, private sector, Church, civil society organizations, etc.
Core leadership skills will be developed through the facilitated group sessions, presentations on the practical application of leadership concepts and tools in real-life situations. After the gathering, follow up meetings will be held with participants in their different institutions to provide support and guidance (mentorship) on how the young leaders can continue to lead with more clarity as they understand better how to navigate complex challenges.
Speakers and facilitators at the Annual Leaders Gathering are selected from different fields and expertise to share with all participants what they have learned over the years. Participants, therefore, should expect;
- To learn about the concept of purpose and what it entails
- Gain tools to use to design the kind of life they want to live embodied in purpose.
- To be part of a large network of like-minded young people.
- Work together in small groups as they share experiences and lessons learned.
- To get connected to people who can mentor them along the way as they navigate and understand better their life’s purpose.
- To gain timeless wisdom from speakers and facilitators.
