Thought Leadership

Student Officer Support Through Storytelling | September 13, 10 a.m. Eastern

Coole Insight’s flagship Student Officer Support Programme is utilized at 30 participating student unions across the United Kingdom and Ireland and has helped over 100 student officers open doors for students’ unions to connect, share, and engage in a framework of peer-to-peer learning. Data from this program provides insights into student officer experiences and motivations. One important aspect of the program is helping students discover and tell their story to influence and create change in their institutions and wider society. This Thought Leadership session expands on this idea of supporting student officers through storytelling, developing a more conscious and deliberate approach to their personal effectiveness, and enabling them to maximize the unique opportunity of being a senior leader within their university.
