Broward County Public Schools (BCPS) will host the first Student Executive Leadership Symposium. Eighty high school students will participate in the event, which is also sponsored by J.P. Morgan, and Broward College. 
Students will participate in a full day of executive learning opportunities with skill building in business networking, business etiquette, work ethics, resume writing, speaking skills, as well as training in business lunch etiquette. An executive business panel will also be present to answer questions for students to learn about what paths each executive leader has taken to reach the top. The event closes with the guest executives spending one on one time with students to answer specific questions about their careers, networking opportunities and their path to become executives from some of Broward County’s top industries.
The LEEO project is a partnership between BCPS and Broward College, which provides students with measurable mastery of skills and knowledge that will allow them to transition seamlessly from education to the global business world.
