Think about the culture you are living in right now. It is fast paced. There is great focus on pleasure and self-happiness. Hurt, anger and pain is everywhere. Anxiety and depression are on the rise. Diversity is more evident than ever. It’s a tough gig being a young leader in the culture and world we are part of. The good news is there is hope! 

neoLeader Conference 2019 is about developing leaders for such a time as this. Our aim is to equip young adults to have great influence in culture. We have an incredible line-up of experienced leaders from a variety of professions to share how they personally have faced the challenges and joys of leading culture. So no matter what stage of the journey you are at, this conference will encourage, equip and inspire you, for such a time as this.
