On 15th and 16th of October, the IEEE UC Student Branch from Portugal organized in Coimbra the 4th Leadership Camp. The Leadership Camp has begun in 2013 and since that date, it is organized annually with the presence of members from all the Student Branches of Portugal. It is an excellent opportunity to develop management, expressive and oral skills. The participants could listen students of others Student Branches, share their experience in technical matters of management of a Student Branch, participate in several workshops of soft skills and talk with several companies linked to Engineering. We counted with the participation of more than 40 students from various IEEE Student Branches of Portugal and one student of the Student Branch of Elche (Spain). During the weekend we had the opportunity to offer to our participants workshops focusing on soft skills and technical lectures. The student João Santos IEEE-IST SB told us about the TISP 2.0 program, Gonçalo Carito and Francisco Esteves held a workshop of Self-Leadership & Group Dynamics. There was time for talks about the IEEE Affinity Groups with Rafael Arrais presenting the Young Professionals and Filipa Ramos told us about the WIE Portugal. We continued with a presentation about IEEE Academic with the authorship of the student Anisa Shahidian and finally talks about IEEE SAC / SSR, How to build a Sexy Student Branch and Student Branch Reporting to the members of the Portuguese section José Pedro Silva and Tomás Tavares as speakers. It was definitely a very enriching weekend for all the participants!
