Leadership Boot Camp
IBGM Leadership Boot Camp
The Faculty organises the Leadership Boot Camp exclusively for all BBA(IBGM) first-year students every year. It aims to polish students’ leadership skills and enhance the bonding of IBGM freshmen through a series of workshops and activities to be held at a local campsite.
In October 2019, IBGM freshmen met with four entrepreneurs/intrapreneurs at the Leadership Boot Camp where students were able to understand the journey of running a startup and applying leadership skills in big corporations. Aside from the insightful sharing by successful entrepreneurs, several other practical learning activities such as leadership training, coaching sessions, pitching, presentations, and prototype making were hosted by industry trainers to enhance and polish students’ leadership skills.
I acquired different practical skills and knowledge in the training sessions. It was my first time learning how to pitch a project in a more attractive and organized way. It was also my first experience to do a prototype and why the prototype is good for ideas. “I hear and I forget, I see and I remember, I do and I understand.” I really like this quote mentioned by the trainer. Doing is the best kind of thinking and we should find the quickest path to experience. You cannot work out your plan by just thinking, as you never know if it is feasible or practical.
