Who should attend

The programme is for senior leaders with the objective of sparking new thinking and action in individual, company and ecosystem levels.

About the course

Products and services have become obsolete overnight and new waves of competition from truly customer-oriented companies and start-ups have changed the business landscape. New business models and technologies have not only disrupted incumbents, but also created new jobs which demand new capabilities. Even change itself has changed. The frenzy of digitalisation, disruption, new technologies, start-ups and automatisation crave drastically different skill sets from leaders, ones that will help organisations navigate the rapidly changing business environment.

You and your company can now be among the first to navigate the fluid business environment and lead emerging ecosystems.

The program helps you turn future trends into strategies, to learn from pitfalls and success factors, to create powerful collaboration models and define the cornerstones of how to lead your teams to great results. We will hear from interesting speakers and get inspired from great success cases.

Building your business network of shakers of the future starts here!
