PAST THEMES

Smith Leadership in Business Conference (SLBC) is proud to announce that we have recently rebranded from the previous Queen’s Commerce Leadership Summit. SLBC is a student-run leadership development conference aimed to equip delegates with the necessary skills to thrive in a business world which is changing more now than ever.  Our goal is to reach a group of delegates that come from a variety of programs across Canada and continue to challenge the way that we define leadership. To achieve this, our conference provides learning experiences that are accessible, value-driven, and focus on professional and personal development.

 

SLBC has distinguished itself within the Smith Commerce Society as the premier business leadership conference at Queen’s University. This is evident in our 2014 and 2015 nominations for “Conference of the Year” by the Commerce Society, as well as winning the 2017 Commerce Cup Award, which recognized the conference that contributed the most to the Smith School of Business. 

 

This year, the theme of the conference is “From Adversity to Advantage”, to emphasize the opportunities to learn and strategically grow from the challenges in our current environment. Essentially, SLBC 2021 aims to amplify a diverse set of perspectives, to inspire delegates and shift their perceptions of the adversity they may experience. Our top priority is to guide delegates in their leadership development by leveraging industry expertise, with corporate partners that think beyond conventional norms and understand the implications of their business decisions.

As the Co-Chairs of SLBC 2021, we have the opportunity to create a lasting impact on the business leaders of tomorrow by challenging their personal definition of leadership. Since its inception, our executive team has been committed to this mission, and alongside corporate sponsors and carefully selected speakers, we aim to continue cementing our position as the premier undergraduate leadership conference. 

 

Sincerely,

Eleni Zavos & Julian Ezman

Co-Chairs of SLBC 2021
