European Delegation for Quo Vadis 3: Tools for Success – 50 places for Europe – register now!

Two years ago, a small group of students asked themselves a question in Latin, Quo Vadis?  In other words, “where are we going”, as a new, young Polish generation?  They put forth a leadership challenge for like-minded people and organized the first Quo Vadis conference held in Ottawa, the capital of Canada.

A year later the Quo Vadis conference emerged in Windsor, Ontario, building bridges between young Americans and Canadians of Polish descent, and opening the doors to a greater cooperation and dialogue among the students and young professionals of the global Polish diaspora.

As we prepare for the third Quo Vadis conference, the world and especially Poland is rife with opportunities for the new visionaries, the innovators, entrepreneurs, investors, collaborators and leaders who will take part in the conference.  It is the purpose of Quo Vadis 3 to provide the tools for success needed for Poland’s best young minds, at home and abroad, to achieve the goals and answers they seek when they ask the question where are we going? Quo Vadis?

The organizers of Quo Vadis 3: Tools of Success are currently accepting applications from young, vibrant and motivated students and young professionals to fill fifty spots – twenty-five students, and twenty-five young professionals – at this year’s annual Quo Vadis conference, held in Toronto, Canada between May 13th and 15th 2011.

All successful applicants will travel to Toronto as soon as May 11th for a pre-organized and fully-paid tour of the Greater Toronto Area.

The cost of attending this conference is 140€ for young professionals, 95€ for students, and 30€ for those from Eastern Europe.

All other registration, transportation, accommodation, and meal costs are covered through the generous sponsorship of the Senate of the Republic of Poland.
