The 2017 Leaders Training Conference (LTC) was a week to remember. It was a momentous 4-day life changing experience for each participant at the Academy held at Peninsula Resort, Ajah from Wednesday 8th March to Sunday 12th March, 2017 for an intensive training on Leadership. The leadership training was organized for Chapter Executives of the Impact Leaders Club (ILC) in Universities of Lagos, Calabar, Uyo, Portharcourt and Niger Delta University. The training kicked off with a welcome and general self introduction of all the participants and their respective Club Advisers. Lectures began the next day on a high with the Self Discovery Class and concluded on the last day with a powerful and inspiring class by the Visionary, Engr. Akin Odumakinde. Each day was broken into 3 sessions which ended with ILC targeted trainings to help the Executives understand their respective roles and goals for ILC. One of the high points of the whole training experience was the injection of Impact Alumni to the Course Faculty and Planning Committee.

The training was spiced with Leadership Practicals, Team Tasks, Talent Hunt Competition, Assignments, Break-out Sessions, Morning Exercises, etc to help them bond and have fun while learning deep things on Leadership. There was also the Tour Excursions, where the students were taken to Bay Atlantic and Eko Atlantic while showing them round Lagos . The whole training experience was capped with a colorful graduation ceremony and award presentations to outstanding students during the training and Chapters for the previous year (2016), witnessed by Mrs. Tomi Somefun, Managing Director Unity Bank. Also Law books were presented to the respective Law Faculties of the participating schools. The VP, Mrs Odumakinde, also presented Phone Tabs, Call Cards and Stationeries to the 5 Club Presidents to help their performances and work on the job. To further strengthen the week long experience, there was also a graduation/Barbeque party on the eve of their departure. There were lots of fun games, BBQ, Drinks and music to electrify the night.

They all left with high emotions and tears at departure, promising to put to practice, all they have learnt from LTC.

The whole essence of the training is to ignite transformational leadership change in the executives running the Club, working hand in hand with the appropriate school Authorities/Principals to effect positive changes and impact in their respective campuses while setting Leadership standards. Without doubt, this training has impacted the lives of these youths. See pictures below.
