Shaping Personal Legacies

A YELP Fellows Reunion Seminar

10 - 11 September
starting at 4:30pm EAT


Shaping Personal Legacies: Guiding Leaders Towards Living a Life of Significance

This second YELP Alumni seminar combines different experiences from the traditional three seminars YELP fellows go through in their one year of training. The sessions include taking fellows through deep reflections on moving beyond the “self” in the journeys from success to living a life of significance.

Participants are exposed to practical lessons to learn from, on achieving and managing personal success, practicing self-care and living fulfilled lives, and in turn, moving on to making significant contributions in society.

From the seminar, Fellows are expected to reflect on the sort of legacy they want to leave, and how to navigate the pitfalls that come with bold leadership decisions, sacrifices, that each of these leaders has had to make at different points in time.
