The Belgian Leadership Project is a program, created in 2015, that aims at connecting talented young leaders from across Belgium. Through a series of lectures, training sessions, and social responsibility initiatives, program members get a chance to meet with professionals in different sectors and undertake study visits to several Belgian cities. Members get to network with young Belgians from across the country, enhance their negotiation and public speaking skills, and broaden their professional horizons by acquiring an experience in different professional sectors.

The 2018 edition
After two successful editions, the program will soon enter its third edition: it is expected to start in February 2018 and to run through December 2018. Several themes will be addressed throughout the year, ranging from politics and international relations to the private sector, culture, and skills trainings such as public speaking and creative writing.
This year the BLP comes back with an even more diverse set of sessions, which will take place all around Belgium. Our team strives to plan sessions either after course hours (late afternoon), or on week-ends. No activity is foreseen in July and August and during the exam period.
A few examples of sessions planned for this edition: visit of the Federal Parliament, visit of a management consulting company, visit of a law firm, training on public speaking and negotiation, visit at the national broadcaster, visit at the Belgian Ministry of Foreign Affairs, attendance of an opera, study visits in different Belgian cities, team-building weekend away, etc.
