NTE 2018 | Sixth edition

Traineeships are offered in all sorts of forms, shapes and sizes nowadays. The objective? To train and develop the young and talented new bright minds to become a top specialist and/or top manager. In these programs trainees are usually thrown in the deep end with, on a regular basis, off-the-job training they reflect and develop skills. It is in this fashion that we challenge upcoming trainees in your organization to participate in this year’s edition of the National Trainee Event.


National Trainee Event | 2 November 2018

In the sixth edition of the National Trainee Event we will focus on Imagine the Future. It is a buzzword and represents almost all of the challenges that need to be addressed to become a future-proof society and economy. Developments, such as the Internet of Things, Big Data and Circular Economy, are affecting an economic transition. Subsequently, this has an affect on our society and the organisation you work for and how problems are addressed and ultimately solved. Consequently, what kind of skills do you need to deal with these transitions and what kind of leadership is required from you and your organisation? In other words, how can we, together, establish true  leadership for impact?
