Relationship Building Lunches
Not a fan of keynote speakers over lunch while you are trying to relax? Neither are we! The conference offers one hour breaks for casual conversations, movement, sunshine (or not) and the opportunity to meet people or take a “mental break.”
Boxed lunches (technically they are fancy bags with handles) are available for all conference participants to take out to the patio tables or venture poolside - as long as you return! Enjoy the sunshine. If you want to take advantage of the “Questions of Leadership” in the lunches to generate conversation, use them! If not, feel welcome to simply “chill.”
What a shame it would be to not maximize on the talents and interests of like minded individuals. Engaging Conversations are facilitated conversations by The Faculty based upon desirable interests. Select whichever topic appeals to you and go to that designated room listed on your schedule. Small group discussions can be as intimate or general as you desire.
Topical areas include, but are not limited to the following: Becoming a social entrepreneur, Starting a non-profit, Going into politics, Being a new professional, Surviving the job search, Leading as an introvert, and Taking better self-care.

Universal Studio's City Walk
You're in Orlando... time to have some fun! As a courtesy, transportation is provided to University Studio's City Walk right down the road - 4 miles away - or you can "Uber" it. The shuttle runs continuously starting at 7:00 PM from the transportation dock at the hotel to a designated drop off/pick up location. The last bus departs City Walk at 11:00 PM. Conference attendees are responsible for your own transportation and the shuttle bus is provided only as a courtesy.
Student Lead365Talks & Closing Session
Oh that's right. Students can apply to give a 7 minute talk with the same format as the professional speakers use in their Lead365Talks! Four students will be selected in advance. Interested? Don't just sit there... EMAIL THE EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR AND SAY YOU'RE INTERESTED.
That's only part of this dynamic closing session. A Think Back video highlights the previous three days of transformation and good times. The Lead365 National Award (with a $500 cash prize) is presented to an outstanding professional or undergraduate. Sponsors are thanked (of course) and a Good Bye video from The Faculty closes out the program. Distribution of Certificates of Completion (suitable for framing) and an appropriate send off concludes what promises to have been an amazing growth and learning experience for undergraduates, graduate students, leadership educators and new professionals.
