Taste of Knowledge Event
Taste of Knowledge Event, June 5th 2014
Over 100 participants visited the latest biannual Taste of Knowledge event organised on 5 June 2014
Titled “Leadership with Balls”, this edition of the event played on the fact that it was taking place just a week before the opening of the World Cup 2014 in Brazil.
Drawing a parallel between football teams and companies, the talks and workshops of the afternoon examined the various ingredients and conditions for good leadership and effective team strategy that are necessary to create an environment where players work together for a better performance of their team or organisation as a whole.
The programme of the afternoon consisted of a plenary session with a conversation between Director Postgraduate Education (PGE) Mariëlle Heijltjes and two guest speakers, Ria Joosten, businesswoman of the year 2014, and Theo Thuis, COO of Q-Park, on their views on good leadership and what it takes to keep performing at top level, followed by five workshops on various aspects of the day’s theme.
The Taste of Knowledge events are especially designed for professionals who wish to invest in personal development or learn new insights that will help them improve the performance of their organisation. Led by SBE professors and affiliated experts, the free workshops were like tasty bites of the executive programmes and expertise offered by SBE.
Judging by the feedback on the workshops and the reactions on Twitter, PGE’s Taste of Knowledge event delivered on its promise.
