The Leeds - New York Leadership Programme is unique. I was exposed to an intense yet rewarding leadership experience. Through collaboration and a multidisciplinary aspect of the delivery, I was exposed to many different perspectives. This was an informing and enriching process to engage with. The hybrid scholar / practitioner environment the programme offers allows for learning, while in the real world. I was drawn to apply by three terms, leadership, cultural intelligence and New York! I am glad I did as I met wonderful people with a shared interest, in an amazing setting New York. Meeting all our alumni; the location; the facilitators; the challenge all combined worked brilliantly together. This experience is one I thoroughly recommend as it is truly transforming. I have met amazing people and have made good friends. I know there is a leader in me.
