From the 9th-11th OctoberCOBIS and King’s Group welcomed student leaders from 13 COBIS schools to the COBIS/King’s Group Student Leadership Weekend hosted by King’s College, Madrid. 29 students from schools in 9 countries attended the conference which included workshops and sessions from leading speakers on What is Student Leadership, Social Media Challenge, Public Speaking, Presentation Skills and more.

COBIS CPD and Events Officer, Amy Carter, attended the event and was delighted to see COBIS student leaders fully engage and immerse themselves in the programme as well as having an opportunity to meet and network with fellow students from around the world!

Alongside the inspiring and interactive sessions, King’s Group colleagues delivered a Wide Game: 1920s Themed Murder Mystery Challenge which was a particular hit with the students who paired off to unscramble the riddles and solve the mystery.

On the 10th of October Mark Corbett, one of Future Foundations Coaches delivered presentation and public speaking skills, his first of four key points in the session were:

  • Always be on point

“If you can’t write you message in a sentence you can’t say it in an hour”- Dianna Booher

  • Communicate effectively
  • Be refined

“I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel”- Dr Maya Angelou

  • Authenticity

“There is no best way of presenting than your own way”
