Within the program we strongly build on the following three pillars:
Who are you as a leader? How do you go about strategic change? To answer these questions, we will discuss topics such as corporate governance and the dynamics in the boardroom. In addition, we will dive into leadership and behavior.
Professional speakers will give you insights into the basics of corporate governance and share personal experience of the dynamics in the boardroom.
How do you deal with headhunters? What is the importance of due diligence when accepting a role as a director, board member or member of a supervisory board?
During our program, you will work on your personal branding and other indispensable soft skills to answer these questions. Lobbying, personal styling, positioning, and building your network are all part of the program.
Leading Women on Boards is a unique program where you will build strong mutual ties in an intimate setting and at unique locations in the Netherlands.
