Detailed Programme

During this 2 day programme we unravel 4 new trends in Management & Leadership.

Are you future proof?

By Marc Buelens

The future is not what is used to be. We are facing  a highly unpredictable world. In a world that is becoming increasingly competitive, dynamic and complex.  Complexity seems to be the silent killer of growth. Complexity is an ever growing hidden cost. We need ‘simple’ business models, we have to realise that strategy has to be defined as simple rules, not as simplistic rules. Less is more. But more is different. When should you trust your judgment?

The changing nature of leadership

By Katleen de Stobbeleir

In this session, we focus on important trends in business and their consequences for leading organizations. Central questions that will be addressed are: How do leaders need to lead today? What will the future of leadership development look like?

The Mint countries: Another Bric in the Wall?

By Filip Abraham

Will Mexico, Indonesia, Nigeria, Turkey emerge as economic leaders among world nations. Are they the next phase in the relative decline of the US and Europe? Will they take over from the Bric countries, now struggling after a decade of spectacular growth?

Let’s open the debate.

Digital Strategy

By Steve Muylle

Digital technologies are remaking the business world. While born-on-the-Web and first-on-mobile firms receive a lot of attention, the bulk of the economy still consists of established firms that serve existing customers through conventional processes. While most of these established firms venture online, there is typically a lot more they can do. Based on a digital strategy planning framework that was published  at the Massachusetts Institute for Technology (MIT) and validated with dozens of firms across the globe, this session will illustrate how established firms can plan digital initiatives in support of their offline and online business processes.

  1. What does the future have in store for China and the EU?

    We live in economically and geopolitically turbulent times. Considering that the EU can, in all likelihood, no longer depend on the unconditional support of its most important trade partner, the USA, the EU has been accelerating the process of concluding free trade agreements with Canada, Japan, Australia, the MERCOSUR countries, Singapore and the ASEAN member states. However the absence of China from this list is striking. Nevertheless, China and the EU could both benefit from closer collaboration. Professor Filip Abraham and Jan Van Hove take a close look at the trade and investment relationship between the two parties - from the perspective of the EU.
  2. Staying ahead of the political game

    Some see office politics as a necessary evil; some welcome the opportunity to show their political skills. Others simply refuse to play ‘the game’. But it’s not a winning or losing game. Being politically savvy doesn’t mean that you win at the expense of someone else. It’s not about being false or self-centred either. Or playing favourites, let alone back-stabbing. On the contrary: we argue that remaining authentic is of vital importance.
