What is LEAP ? LEAP stands for Learn, Engage, Act and Progress . The Aim of the LEAPin conference is to promote communication between the expert and inexperienced youth or new startup venturing into the next step of their growth.
On November 27th LEAPin was held for the 5th consecutive time in Albania to develop and boost economic growth of the country. Also to pave for startups to rise and grow. The Event was attended by more than 300 participants from multiple business sectors, which includes young professionals and future entrepreneurs.
UTDS Optimal Choice was pleased to have the opportunity to become one of the local business partners of the event, which saw our director, Richard Russell giving a keynote presentation.
At the conference, a number of business leaders and entrepreneurs from a range of business backgrounds presented on a variety of topics. Each speaker discussed individual aspects and learnings from their career to date with the aim of giving inspiration to the attendees.
The Event had a wide range of speakers from professors of specific studies to economic experts. The Collaboration with mixed speakers was to promote the necessary requirements to grow a business and also advise on the type of niche that would be of great value. In the current world of business, transformation and technology adaptation plays an important role in shaping a business. Most of the young entrepreneurs have an idea or concept to build up, but what they miss is some early mentorship, guidance and support. Through this event, young professionals were given a chance to hear first hand from experienced academics and professionals on their career experiences. These attendees had the chance to gain valuable knowledge and insight to plan for the best start in their careers.
There is a saying, Growth of the nation starts from growth of the community. Such events like LEAPin have made sure to give their support in developing communities and helping young people with building their career and getting closer to their goal.
In the presentation, Our Director Richard Russell pointed out key facts of working hard to achieve the dream and the importance of focusing on growing oneself . Here are few lines quoted from his speech in the event,
“Your reputation is key. Build it through how you behave and what you can do for others. Push yourself to be better daily. You are tomorrow’s leaders and one day you might be asked to do a talk like this, make sure you do things now to give you the experience to give a better presentation than I ever could”
