The 2020 FIE Student Global Leadership Conference (SGLC) is an educational event and destination for undergraduate and postgraduate student leaders. This weekend-long conference offers delegates engaging keynote and breakout sessions with hands-on, interactive topics featuring unique stories and experiences. The sessions focus on giving participants practical examples and take-away tools for real-world implementation.

We are seeking a broad range of presenters who can provide rich exploration of the conference's theme around Leadership. Sessions should be hands-on, interactive, passionate, and engaging and we would especially welcome the opportunity to hear unique stories and experiences, as well as original research. Student presenters are welcomed and encouraged!

In relation to our SGLC 2020 theme of Leadership for Change in an Uncertain World, topics may include but are not limited to:
•       Leadership for change
•       Leadership strategies in an uncertain future
•       What history taught us about leadership in uncertain times 
•       Leadership skills needed to guide in turbulent times
•       Converting frustration into action
•       Bringing about positive change
•       How to balance Ethics, Profit, and Community
•       Breaking the Mold – New Leadership Styles for a New World View
•       Political Leadership
•       Compassion and Pragmatism
•       Current challenges that are bringing about change in an uncertain present and future (ex. The polarization of political ideologies and wealth distribution, mass bio-extinction, refugee crisis, hardening of borders, social media and the erosion of personal privacy, greater isolation, and an increase in mental ill-health)

Proposals will be accepted on a rolling basis. We aim to confirm all presenters by the end of January 2020.

In a time of instability, it is impossible to predict what the future holds. Indeterminate times demand strong leadership that can shore up an uncharted future. Throughout history, great leaders have brought about positive and enduring change in periods of doubt.  But how can today's leaders steer us on a path towards positive change when we don't know what new surprises tomorrow will bring?

FIE's fifth Student Global Leadership Conference will challenge and empower leaders to scope the challenge ahead, to guide in turbulent times, to channel frustration into action, to ensure greater social cohesion and to seek a better, fairer future for the benefit of us all.
