Elvin | Global Leader Experience, Melbourne

Elvin’s reflections on participating in the 2024 Global Leader Experience (GLE). He writes: 

Following a path is easy, but creating a path requires leadership and integrity. GLE stands as a prime example of this principle. My experience at GLE was simply awesome. It was an extremely well-organised two-day event.

As a first-semester master’s student, GLE provided a remarkable opportunity to witness an internationally diverse culture and way of thinking.

My tasks involved coordinating with my team of 10 members to brainstorm and design an idea to address food insecurity issues in Australia. GLE provided us with the perfect duration and structure to ideate. I truly came to understand the impact of listening to others and empathising with their perspectives. Professionally, GLE served as a rehearsal for understanding the responsibilities and realities of leadership.

The event included opportunities to meet various industry professionals, who offered invaluable tips on effective design thinking. One particularly memorable activity involved selling a wooden spoon, which was both fun and meaningful. This experience holds a special place in my heart.

I highly recommend my fellow students to participate in GLE, as it serves as an eye-opener to the nuances of leadership.

You will undoubtedly come to love the GLE experience. I took the initiative to volunteer in roles that required people skills, preparing myself to be an effective leader in the future.
