Welcome and Introduction


Ready 2 Learn?

Keynote Speaker: Amani Simpson

Ready 2 Act?

If we are going to be ready to lead, then we need to be prepared to go somewhere! The aim of Ready2Act? is to give you the opportunity to make a difference to something that matters to you.

In Ready2Act? you will be working with others from your school to plan and implement a project that makes a difference globally or locally.

As part of this, we will be introducing you to the Global Goals Competition. Your school, as well as your team and its members, will need to register for this competition.

What people said about 2020...

It provided me with excellent opportunities and helped me meet some amazing people
2020 Delegate
I would recommend Ready2Lead? because it has helped my self-confidence in working with other people...It has also given me the chance to get to know other students from other schools and make new friends.
2020 Delegate
There are leaders everywhere, but the issue is that they don't have a path to lead. Ready2Lead? is a great way to guide people.
