Conference Description and Goals:


Today’s top leaders in every field made their journey from student to supervisor to leader by making the most of their innate talents, and learning important skills they needed to succeed.  Motivating people, conquering setbacks, creating inspired teams—these are the keys to success for any good leader.  At the conference you will learn:

  • How to develop the confident, positive leader within you
  • Better ways to motivate, inspire, and succeed
  • How to convey your ideas in cross-cultural communications


We will work on developing these and many more skills for you at the SI Student Leadership Conference, while making amazing connections to people and friends that will last a lifetime. 


A Cultural and Educational Experience:


We welcome students of all backgrounds and to make this a well-rounded cultural and educational experience, we are including in our program a variety of activities including an opportunity to visit the Serbian Parliament building, universities, meet local students, see the Serbian Royal Family seat—the White Palace, visit government institutions, and to participate in skill development activities including:

  • Press Conference Presentationswhere students present their ideas in front of a camera (optional)
  • Language immersion through interaction with local students in entertainment and cultural activities
  • Cross-Cultural activities — with locals in outings, touring the city of Belgrade and entertainment
