Leadership Symposium 2013

Leadership Symposium 2013 - Inspiring Future Leaders

Based on the 'Future Ready through Sport' strategic thrust of the Vision 2030 recommendation, Leadership symposium 2013 - Inspiring Future Leaders jointly organised by Sport Singapore and Singapore Management University (SMU) serves as a platform to promote character and leadership development through sport.

On 27 May 2013, a selected group of international and local speakers showed how sports can be used as a strategy to develop people and organisations as we head into a more competitive future by equipping people with skill sets and principles to be future ready. They addressed how sports can be used as an effective tool in corporations/educational institutions for reinforcing key learning points in the leadership development process, inculcating a values-in-action behavior and promoting organisational success.

Educators, student development officers of tertiary institutions and tertiary sports student leaders have found this symposium beneficial as institutions that have adopted the pilot character and leadership development framework in their sports curriculum also shared their insights and experience in the various breakout sessions.
