Using our 26 years of experience and expertise, the team at BOSS have designed a day of workshops and skills sessions to up skill and empower the future presidents and vice presidents of Sikh societies across colleges and universities around the UK. Our Sikh student leadership day is exclusively for the budding leaders of the 2018/19 academic year and will take place at the student union at the University of Wolverhampton on Saturday 30th June 2018
On the day there will be workshops that will accredit you with skills such as authenticity in your leadership, conflict resolution and delegation skills amongst others. We will hold one to one mentoring sessions with ex-presidents who will be able to give you a unique insight into the best way to lead and help you explore your own personal leadership style, strengths and weaknesses. There will be discussions on the role we all play collectively in the UK and plenty of opportunities to network with like-minded fellow leaders to get ahead for the year.

The day-long workshop is FREE for all Presidents and vice presidents who have been elected or selected for the 2018/19 academic year ahead. The day includes drinks, lunch and snacks but you MUST register if you wish to attend. Places are strictly limited and we may close early if we fill capacity so apply early to avoid disappointment.
Ordinarily, a specialised skills day like this would around £200 for you to attend but BOSS is offering this training for free. The sessions will be intimate and there will be plenty of opportunities to speak to experts in the field of leadership and student and university life. You won't get another opportunity like this for such specialised personal development training and it will give you the head start you need for the September fresher’s fayre.

What can I expect to do on the day?
This event is designed to get like-minded presidents and vice presidents from across the country together to empower you with the skills to run a successful society for the academic year ahead.

Be ready to engage and apply yourself - there will be a lot covered on the day and hopefully lots of useful information to take back with you to implement into your local Sikh Soc.
I'm not sure if this event is suitable for me. Can I still attend?
This event is primarily designed for future presidents, co-presidents and vice presidents of Sikh societies in colleges and universities across the UK. If you do not fit this criterion but would still like to attend then email us (firstname.lastname@example.org) with the reason why you think the leadership day will be useful for you and we will see if we can accommodate you.
Do I need to bring anything with me?
We will provide you with everything that you need on the day though you might want to bring a notepad and pen to jot down any ideas or interesting facts you hear on the day.
We need you to bring your best ideas and views with you. Be ready to engage with us and everyone around you to get the most out of the day for yourself.
Do I still need to attend the National Sikh Society day in September if I come to this day?
Absolutely! This is a stand-alone event and the topics covered on both days will be different and equally valuable to you. Plus you'll get to meet over 100 like-minded students at our NSSDay in September and you'll attend with your whole team which will be a great bonding session for you all. View the leadership day as a personal development session especially for you.
What's for lunch?
Have no fear, we will be providing you with plenty of drinks and brain food throughout the day and we'll be providing a vegetarian lunch too. If you have any dietary requirements please do let us know and we will try our best to accommodate you.
