Event description

Description

Every year, thousands of students from around the world score top marks, but only a few go beyond the classroom to take part in or create truly impactful initiatives that they'll be able to showcase on their CV for years to come.

A common problem in New Zealand is that when we think of extracurriculars, there's usually just two activities that spring to mind... sport and music, right?!

But there are so many more options than that!

And when it comes to leadership, students usually wait until Year 13 and then aim for school captain positions or prefects, but that's just the tip of the iceberg!

Come to this event to hear which extracurricular activities and leadership projects could shape your future!

**Want free tickets? There's a clue for a secret promo code down the page!**

Attendees will come away knowing:

  • Discovering what your extracurricular and leadership profile says about you

  • Activites worth pursuing beyond sport, music or captain positions

  • How to make the most of a strong extracurricular and leadership profile

  • How to prioritise activities to maximise your personal brand

  • Why students have an entrepreneurial advantage

  • Inspiring examples of student entrepreneurs from around the world

  • The five questions you need to ask yourself before becoming a student entrepreneur

  • How to maintain your grades while taking on more activities

Hey everyone, I’m Andrew and I’ve recently graduated from Scots College in Wellington where I was Dux and Head of Senior School, as well as the recipient of the Prime Minister's Award for Academic Excellence. Academically, I am passionate about science and business, and have had my scientific research recognised with the Sir Paul Callaghan Eureka! Premier Award. In my spare time, I love exploring the great outdoors and have competed nationally in both cross country and debating.
