“I registered for Vlerick’s Digital Leadership Programme with the goal of gathering some thought-provoking ideas and practices from the Digital World out there. I didn’t expect to be overwhelmed with great insights, real-life cases, fascinating discussions and supportive buddies! This programme is a must attend for all business leaders who want to gain insights into what Digital is, how it works, and what you need to do to get Digital working for your business.”
Ludo Voorn, PostNL

Marketing Director

"The Digital Leadership programme keeps you on the edge of your seat. After the programme, you understand why you don’t need a new digital strategy – but a new strategy in a digitized world! And you also know what you need to do to achieve it. Because, in addition to technology, leadership is the main thing that is needed to succeed in such a transformation.”

"When I, as a Business Manager, received the request to develop a digital affinity plan at Vanbreda, I realised that the insurance industry around me was changing dramatically. The consumer has digital requirements, and we need to meet them. Vlerick’s Digital Leadership Programme provides clear insights into the strategic choices that a company can make − and always in the context of the digital world of today and tomorrow. Answering the questions posed by Prof Stijn Viaene's Exconomy Framework was the perfect starting point. Then, during the programme, (new) theories and practical examples flowed together seamlessly, so that you could immediately apply your learning to your work."

"Digital is no longer an option. Which means companies have to embrace digital opportunities to generate growth – while keeping firmly on top of any risks they pose. To get it right you need to analyse customer needs from end-to-end and then create a digital eco-system that boosts value. You move from challenge to solution by applying the ExConomy framework – which takes into account customer experience and customer dynamics. The Digital Leadership programme has energised me to push even more for digital transformation. However, this time I’ll be equipped with the right tools, frameworks, insights and case studies. I’m looking forward to a successful year."

"I joined this programme to get up-to-date with the world of digital leadership and digital transformation. It was a well-balanced, intense programme that was interesting and inspiring. Our professors were enthusiastic and involved – and I achieved everything I wanted to."

"Digital is not about improving things, it is about being different and disruptive. Digital does not equal social, it contains much more than that. This programme helped me to get to know the different building blocks of digital, and how to implement this mind-set and strategy in my business. It offers a diverse set of topics and tools you need to know to lead the digital transformation in your organisation. On top of that, the business cases helped us think out of the box without any limitations, so we could even be disruptive between ourselves."

  2. How to convince your online customers as a newcomer?

    A growing number of established companies are turning to e-commerce as an additional sales channel. Plenty of smaller start-ups, however, choose to set up only an online shop, without investing in physical points of sale. How can you convince first-time consumers to buy your products or services online, as an unfamiliar vendor? Are all kinds of guarantees sufficient? Or should you consider investing in a customer review module?
