A message from Conference Director, Andrew Francalanza: 

FIE deeply regrets that due to the ongoing challenges presented by COVID-19, we have taken the very difficult but responsible decision to postpone the 2020 Student Global Leadership Conference until 2021.

Until as recently as 11thMarch, FIE had fully intended for the conference to go ahead.  Nevertheless, public health concerns, the fluid nature of travel restrictions and the UK government’s increasingly likely discouragement of public gatherings has ultimately led us here.  We are sure that as a delegate or presenter, you will be very disappointed with this development, as are we in having to make it.  However, the well-being of all those at the SGLC is our utmost priority.

FIE will refund the conference registration fees within 14 working days. Refunds for online payments will be processed using the online enrollment platform.  We will shortly contact you for payments made in person at Foundation House and payments made via bank transfers.

The subject of SGLC wasLeadership for Change in an Uncertain World.  Events over the last few weeks remind us how interconnected the world and its people are, but also how small actions can have a positive impact on people around us. 

We hope you will still be able to join us for SGLC 2021 on the 9-11 of April in London.  Given the ongoing importance to all of us of SGLC’s 2020 theme,Leadership for Change in an Uncertain World,  FIE has taken the logical decision to postpone, rather than cancel SGLC 2020. 

For those of you who are presenters, we recognize the tremendous amount of work you have put into preparing for the conference, and we would therefore be delighted to defer your presentation spot for 2021. For our student presenters, rest assured you will still receive credit for Ethical Leadership / Leadership London as long as you submit your presentation slides to Heidi James-Dunbar, Academic Faculty Director.

In the meantime, FIE wishes you well in your own journeys over the next few months.

We look forwards to seeing you at theStudent Global Leadership Conference 2021: Leadership for Change in an Uncertain World.

Yours sincerely,
