THE WORKSHOPS

Veroniek De Schamphelaere
Ever wondered what differentiates a successful professional career from a less successful one? Ever wondered where your career is taking you in the next 10 years?

Workshop 2: Why fight for survival if you can collaborate for success?

Prof Barney Jordaan
The need for us to collaborate with others - in business and in the personal sphere - has never been greater. Nature has given us the inherent ability to do so. Yet we tend to compete or even fight for results or to ‘win’, not realising that doing so could not only limit the outcomes we achieve, but also put unnecessary pressure on the relationships that matter most. Why is this so? How can we unlearn the habits that cause unnecessary conflict and stress in interaction with others? And what can we do to not only enhance our gains but also enhance our personal well-being? Come and learn, in a practical way, how to fight less and collaborate more. 
 
 
Workshop 3: The Entrepreneurial Mindset (FULLY BOOKED)
Prof Miguel Meuleman
What can we learn from entrepreneurs and innovative executives to become more effective at identifying and exploiting new business opportunities? Using insights from the Innovator’s DNA, we share practices for becoming more innovative in our day-to-day work. According to research, innovators dare to question the status-quo, they observe and experiment, and they network to get more ideas. Participants in this workshop will get concrete examples on how to do those things and tools for taking concrete steps towards a more innovative and creative way of working!
 
 
Workshop 4: Strategy: from business to corporate, from local to global (FULLY BOOKED)
 
Prof Carine Peeters
Why do so many firms fail where few succeed? Strategy is part of the answer. So join us as we challenge received ideas about what strategy is (or should be) and elucidate hot issues like: 'Developing a winning business strategy: What questions to answer and how?', 'The hard reality of value creation in multi-business companies' and 'Are you ready to go international?'
