for Learning Impact
To make digital transformation a success in today’s complex world, companies need to be sustainable, agile, alert to opportunities – and act faster than their competitors.
This programme dives into the challenges and opportunities facing leaders going through digital transformation. Using the 4V digital transformation leadership model, you’ll explore the types of leadership that can contribute to your digital journey – and understand what digital transformation means for you, your colleagues and your organisation and its sustainability.
Over five consecutive days on campus, you’ll dive into the world of digital transformation, develop the critical skills to evolve your leadership role and share experiences with your fellow participants.
The Digital Leadership Programme takes place over five consecutive days on campus. There are also informal evening activities where you can get to know fellow participants – and learn more about their experiences in different sectors and specialisms. It’s a good idea to book a hotel near our campus so you can get the most from the whole experience. These hotels are all nearby.
In previous editions, we had the pleasure of welcoming participants from companies like:
Head of Digital Customer Experience D'Ieteren
I strongly believe that embracing digital in a smart way can improve the customer experience and optimise business processes. The programme really confirmed that there is no magic formula for increasing an organisation’s digital maturity. We discovered the variety of tasks, points of view, and number of people that should be involved to get to a good result. The main learning lesson is the necessity of a roadmap for the entire organisation – and this programme provided the tools.
Business Unit Director IT Aldi Belgium
It was fascinating to talk to people active in diverse sectors and yet all facing the same issues. The programme also inspired me on a technological level – seeing examples set by the industry pioneers, the technological possibilities, and hearing the guest lecturers who have lived such a transformation first-hand and were eager to share their experiences with the group.

Head of IT @MPET
In my current role as Head of IT I have the ability to engage at both the operational and the strategic level. This programme’s mix of theory, energy scan and tips & tools and the shared experiences in implementing digital transformations in practice has given me lots of insights and inspiration. One of the first actions taken in the organisation was to categorise the roadmap according to the four different types of Digital Leadership.
Extended Reality Lead EMEA Medtronic
Working in change management and innovation, I looked for a programme with an end-to-end vision and a ‘people’ aspect beyond ‘digital’. The participants all face similar challenges, and it’s a relief to hear that you’re not alone. Digital transformation isn’t easy, but it starts with understanding your company’s culture and finding the right leadership styles. Combined with agility and the courage to take risks.
