Reviews

Executive from South Africa 2013

5.0
Course quality: excellent
Instructors: excellent
Other (e.g. materials, infrastructure): excellent
Primary takeaway: The ability to see things in perspective and consider several angles. The networking was amazing.
Things to improve: The course is aimed at people who are old enough to appreciate the value and learnings and who have come up against the typical issues one has in a work place when you enter management level. I would ensure that people subscribing for the course are clear on what they require from the course and what it can deliver. It was perfect for me then, but won't be for me now.
Industry:beverage

Who should attend

This programme is designed for women in middle to senior management levels and those who not only want to create a legacy for their corporates but for the societies in which they live too. Candidates should be experienced business women or be designated as contenders for further leadership responsibility.

About the course

Senior women in business will develop the skills in a diverse and inclusive environment to deal with a changing world

Gender equality and the rights of women have gained significant momentum in the last few years, and it continues to gain traction in business, government policies and practices. Women and men themselves who see the full value of women leaders are championing the change they want to see for the present and the future. The local and global gender inclusion movements depict the urgency of the changing landscape. This programme is about creating opportunities for women who are already leaders in their current spheres of influence to become the best version of themselves. We empower them with the realities of what it means to lead with significance and action, with passion and purpose, in this uncertain, volatile and ambiguous world during the 4th Industrial Revolution.

This course is part of number of select programmes which include the offer of access to Linkedin Learning – online learning video courses. Access will be made available on the first day of the GIBS programme and extends two months from the date of completion of the course.
