Foróige’s Leadership for Life Conference is held annually and is one of the highlights of the Foróige calendar. The conference involves 300 young people aged 15-18. There are three levels of participation at the conference. These are Module 1, Module 2 and Advanced Leadership. The conference is held over 5 days (usually late July/ early August) and includes workshops, guest speakers and lots of extracurricular activities such as teambuilding night, sports evening, quiz night, talent night, graduation dinner and entertainment etc.
Previous guest speakers at the conference have included Joe Duffy, Pat Divilly, Joan Freeman, Dr. Joseph Roche, Kenneth Egan, Louise Phelan, Caroline Casey, Ian White, Emily Logan, Noeline Blackwell, Dylan Haskins, Dr. Lynne Holden, Jacqueline Murekatete, Joanne O’Riordan, Liam McKenna, Séan Gallagher and many others. These speakers tell their personal leadership journey, their challenges, their successes and will inspire the delegates to achieve their goals.
