The LEAP Conference is an impactful initiative that seeks to inspire its audience with the stories behind how the most ambitious minds came to achieve their breakthrough experiences. Organized for students and by students, the topic of discussion this year was discomfort. More specifically, there was a discussion on how students can apply specific tools to break away from traditional boundaries surrounding the topic.
The event's guests were also able to listen to a range of speakers, from Lorent Saleh, a Venezuelan human rights activist, to Eva Herber, a professor at IE University and psychologist. Students were able to approach the topic of discomfort from a range of perspectives, and learn how they can best tackle the problems that may arise from it. There were also five different workshops that students could participate in. This allowed students to adapt their conference experience to their interests, choosing the workshops that were best suited to their passions.
