Robert Kuik, TenneT TSO BV, The Netherlands
Manager Grid Development and Strategy 

“The Future Grid Managers Programme offers a unique opportunity to gain broad insight into the (future) European energy market, and how it is challenging the (roles of the) DSO and TSO. The programme combines keynote lectures by experienced speakers with active learning via games and facilitates round table discussions on current topics with participants and experts from the energy sector. In addition, the programme anticipates leadership and change, putting both in a personal and an organizational perspective. I really enjoyed this journey with my fellow participants from all across Europe – the programme gave me the opportunity to boost my professional and personal knowledge and experience.”



Myriam Guilloteau, RTE, France
Head of HV Substation Engineering Team 

“This Future Grid Managers Programme is very interesting both in terms of managerial practices and in knowledge of future trends in the energy sector. Above all, I would like to highlight rich exchanges with fascinating speakers (inspiring leaders or experts in their field), as well as dynamic exchanges with my European colleagues from TSOs, DSOs and other companies. The use of case studies illustrated the theory and helped us understand the issues from different perspectives. The programme is a good way to leave the operational world for a moment and immerse myself in a broader vision of the sector's challenges. In addition, I have gained new colleagues and friendships in different European countries. I really enjoyed this programme!”

Joana Freitas, REN, Portugal
Planning and Control Director 

“I was looking for a programme that would allow me to learn more about the energy sector (European legislation, impact of technology, energy transition challenges and opportunities, etc.), but from a business perspective – and that’s exactly what I found in the Future Grid Managers Programme. The partnership between the Florence School of Regulation and Vlerick Business School brings together the depth of research and the pragmatic approach required for managerial roles. The programme harnesses high-calibre faculty, seasoned experts from European institutions, and inspiring C-suite keynote speakers, and it has helped me broaden my international professional network. It was also a privilege and pleasure to share the 3 modules with a great group of colleagues – we are hoping to keep this network alive by starting an (informal) alumni association!”
