LEAP is an annual conference hosted by the students of IE University, with the theme of ‘Breakthrough Experiences’. The initiative brings together inspiring leaders from different walks of life, in order to to encourage students to challenge themselves and pursue their goals, by daring to ‘take a leap’.

LEAP is about creating an environment in which stories and experiences can be shared, thus inspiring young people to reconsider what they know, encouraging them to think outside-the-box and to start making things happen.


Through an immersive one-day event, we offer the ultimate environment for gripping storytelling and the sharing of ideas. We passionately believe that the power for young people to succeed in their lives and careers lies in their own hands. By showcasing the talent and courage of a range of Creators and Doers, our community will feel inspired to do the same.

This year, LEAP is also introducing a practical element to the conference, alongside our fantastic speakers, in the form of impactful action workshops and training sessions. Through these, participants will be able to take inspiration from the experiences shred and learn how they can effectively go
on to implement this in their lives.



This year’s conference will be held at the convent Santa Cruz la Real, a historic building that was declared a national heritage site in 1931.

Since it is currently the campus of IE University in Segovia, we could not have chosen a better venue to showcase uniqueness. The event will take place in four different rooms, which are designed to facilitate the best possible interaction between attendees.


Our speakers are individuals who challenge conventionalism by taking the risk of doing something new. Ranging from business people to artists, they are all bound by their entrepreneurial spirits and the ability to turn their ideas into reality.


After realizing the talent within the IE community, a group of students decided to create a conference that would highlight the experiences of individuals who decided to take a LEAP and prospered because of it. The main objective of the students became to excite their peers with the inspiring stories of the speakers and empower them to always go one step further. Now, years later, this continues to be the goal that drives us in this year’s LEAP conference.

Are you ready to take the LEAP?


Leap conference is evolving. This year our vision has grown, and we aim to develop a project that will allow us to reach and inspire both IE University students and the Spanish community. We will conduct a series of short and compelling interviews in which various members of our student body share the story of their very own breakthrough experiences. With these conversations, we hope not only to increase excitement for the conference but also to show our viewers that anything is possible if you dare to take a leap.
