QCLS is a student-run leadership development conference aimed to enhance the necessary skills in an ever-changing business world; leveraging industry expertise and experiential learning. Our goal is to bring together a diverse group of delegates to learn and develop transferable leadership skills, through educational initiatives that focus on social, professional and personal growth.
Since 2012, QCLS has distinguished itself within the Queen’s 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 “Leaders without Limits”, a concept that encourages individuals to explore their strengths and untapped potential in three key growth areas: personal, social, and professional. Essentially, QCLS 2020 hopes to promote creativity and unique problem-solving skills to better equip delegates for the dynamic business landscape we find ourselves in today. Our top priority is to guide delegates in their leadership growth by partnering with experienced and insightful speakers that think beyond conventional norms and understand the implications of their business decisions.
We recognize that societal expectations are increasing, and corporate priorities are by shifting. Thus, we hope to further focus on social impact and thought leadership to deliver critical insights and challenge current perspectives. On behalf of the entire QCLS 2020 Executive Team, we have recognized you as someone that has made a significant impact on both the people and environment around them. In our journey to continue cementing our position as the premier undergraduate leadership conference, we hope you will play a significant role in shaping this year’s conference.
