The Taylor Leadership Institute at the University of North Florida, in partnership with UNF Undergraduate Studies, presents the seventh annual Student Leadership Summit from 9 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Friday, Nov.13, in the Student Union, Building 58W, Ballrooms, Rooms 3703 A-D, on the UNF campus.

The summit’s theme, “Leadership Presence: Recognize It, Cultivate It – Own It!,” emphasizes the importance of today’s leaders identifying and developing their own unique signature presence, an authentic and powerfully magnetic radiance that positively influences the behaviors of others.

This year’s summit features an interactive workshop led by internationally accredited executive coach and author James Scouller, whose book, “The Three Levels of Leadership,” is a manual for today’s leaders to identify the behavioral knowhow and skills necessary to develop leadership presence. In his presentation, Scouller will clarify the leadership construct of presence as he guides participants in identifying their current level of presence and practices that will assist them in advancing.

With nearly 30 years’ experience in the industry, Scouller started The Scouller Partnership, a specialist executive coaching practice, in 2004 after 11 years as a CEO in the United States. He coaches both experienced and up-and-coming leaders, as well as executive teams in multinationals, small private firms and not-for-profit organizations.

Following the presentation, there will be a reception. To register or for more information about the Student Leadership Summit, visit or e-mail Alison Noonan, Taylor Leadership Institute coordinator, at
