WHAT ARE BOARD MEMBERS TALKING ABOUT?

This one-of-a-kind learning experience gives leaders the chance to gain foresight and fluency in the most relevant challenges that Boards of top organizations worldwide face.

With expert faculty and leading thinkers, this program will inspire you through workshops, lectures, insightful meetings with board members, as well as the chance to curate your own learning experience. You will not only be exposed to the latest thinking in key areas but will also have the unique opportunity to have a roundtable discussion with Board members of leading organizations (Microsoft, Inditex, Telefonica, etc.) to get their valuable insights.

And, of course, participants will have the chance to learn inside and outside of the classroom as the program includes non-class activities (being alone visiting a museum, cooking together, etc.) that will enrich the experience.

DAY 1 - Changing Perspectives

Geopolitics and its impact on the economy should drive many business strategies. It seems that the world has been in turmoil since the pandemic, however, history teaches us that our world is continuously in turmoil. All Boards are concerned with where the world is going and the implications on their particular strategy and business model.

The objective of today’s content is to give us context and perspective at a macro-level. We will analyze the geopolitical landscape at a global and regional scale and deep dive into some of the common themes. We will then evaluate where our economy might be moving towards and discuss the implications for organizations.

DAY 2 - Leading to Innovate

Yes, all business leaders they need to innovate. The big question is how. Once the strategic direction has been set, how do we innovate efficiently and flexibly? Boards around the world struggle to oversee the everchanging innovation ecosystems that affect their organizations.

The objective of today’s content is to inspire you and provide you with the frameworks and tools to be able to drive innovation in your organization. Learn to leverage game changing opportunities (tech, data, demographics, etc.) arising from the rapidly changing business landscape.

DAY 3 - Sustainability matters

Sustainability has become a household concept at all levels. From families who are learning to recycle to Boards who need to establish how their organization will incorporate the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and the 2030 Agenda.

The objective of today’s content is twofold: firstly, to understand why this is a must for any organization and, secondly, to improve your ability to make decisions in ways that deliver positive outcomes for business, communities, people, and our planet.

DAY 4 - Frontier Technologies

At the end of the day, most business leaders do two main things: lead business/digital transformation by leading people. All Boards are concerned with key issues around the ROI on technology, the rising importance of data as source of innovation, talent management, how to improve results by leveraging diversity better, etc.

The objective of today’s content is for you to be exposed to the latest thinking in these two fundamental core activities of all business leaders. In addition, you will be able to select the sessions we have prepared for you about People and Digital depending on your interests or needs.

DAY 5 - Presence

It is virtually impossible to be a great leader without knowing yourself and working to be better every day. All Boards (and Board members) know that all leadership teams have a huge challenge to be at their best performance every day. This is one of the reasons why the concept of wellbeing has become a key topic at Board meetings.

To end the program, we have chosen to focus on YOU as a leader. So, today’s content will focus on providing you with the science behind wellbeing, in particular around Resilience and Kindness. You will learn why they are important and how to improve your personal wellbeing.
