The Young Leaders Boot Camp 2020

Thu 24th – Sun 27th September


The Sinan-Wren executive training arm aims to inspire and empower people from the West and the East to innovate and connect with each other, build bridges, break barriers and work collaboratively in developing, promoting and maintaining democracy with a view to live in a more peaceful and cohesive world. We seek to help people on their trajectory of leadership by providing a world class learning environment that ensures our alumni will leave with an exceptional ethos that seeks to create a real positive change wherever they are and in whatever they do.


Exceptional leaders who are visionaries always have the desire for change and to see the world as it can be, not as it is. They recognize the need to develop themselves and the teams that they lead.

Sinan Wren Coaches work with our participants from all over the world through a comprehensive and very intense 3 day programme that seeks to build leadership through a multi polar approach.


You will meet and hear from recognised thought leaders and skilled educators. They will empower you to become the visionary leader your career, your organization and your community need.

Who should attend?

The Young Leaders Boot Camp is designed for undergraduates & postgraduates who may still be studying and recent graduates and others with up to 2 years of solid work experience. The typical age profile for participants in The Young Leaders Boot Camp programme is between 18 and 24 years.
