For whom?

The 'Retail Leadership Programme' is designed for managers who want to broaden their knowledge and deepen their skills in order to play an important role in shaping the future direction of their company and meet the leadership challenge in the retail industry.

This programme is ideal for:

  • newly appointed retail leaders
  • retail middle managers who want to evolve into a leadership role
  • experienced managers, who have built their careers outside the retail industry
  • leaders working for companies serving the retail industry, such as consultants or logistics service providers
  • leaders working for branded goods manufacturers that supply the retail industry

The programme takes an international perspective. The mix of participants, who come from different countries, cultures and retail industries, provides a truly enriching learning experience.

We recommend that 3-6 people from the same organisation participate in the programme in order to stimulate discussions in their company and to anchor the learning optimally.
