 7.50-8.10 pm  ‘Transforming leaders for a better (business) world,’ by Patrick De Greve, General Director Vlerick
 8.10 pm  Reception

The food retail landscape is evolving at an unprecedented pace, driven by customer needs, technology and digitalisation as well as changes in competition, both from existing and new players. In 2016, Ahold Delhaize took a major step forward as it completed its merger and became a top 10 international food retailer. Jan Ernst de Groot, Chief Legal Officer and Member of the Executive Committee, will share his insights in the merger process and discuss where Ahold Delhaize stands today.

Next, I am happy to share my vision on how we as an international business school transform our future leaders for a better (business) world. How we turn action into knowledge and knowledge into action incorporating your support as valued Vlerick community.

We look forward to welcoming you on Monday 6 March in The Hague, at the residence of Chris Hoornaert, the Belgian Ambassador to The Netherlands. Please register (after logging in) via the link in the right-hand navigation of this page
