Leaders Summit 2016

NACUE’s Leaders’ Summit celebrates the dedication, talent and achievements of our network, bringing together our Members for a day of training, networking and awards.

This year we’re doing things a bit differently, building on previous years to create an event that is all about you. There are still awards up for grabs and training opportunities, but this year there are big cash prizes to get your hands on too.

We invite you to submit an online application explaining your societies achievements and you could be pitching to win, live at Leaders’ Summit.


This year’s Leaders’ Summit will be hosted at Rise in Manchester! You can find out more about the location, as well as transport links here.


Leaders’ Summit 2016 will take place on 22nd April from 12.30 – 18.00. It will begin with a training workshop from 13.00 and presentations will start at 15.00. Click below to save the date in your calendar.


This event is designed for the leaders of enterprise societies from colleges and universities across the UK. Only societies from our Advanced Member institutions may apply for awards (see Members here). Priority tickets will be given to our Advanced Members but a select number of full price tickets will be available for non-members.
