Managers have a key role in our society. While all of us have the ability to influence ourselves and the people around us, a manager will both directly and indirectly affect coworkers and their environment, which means that we are all benefiting from prosperous and well functioning managers.
We believe that having access to each other’s knowledge and competence makes us stronger. We understand one another, therefore we can help each other to expand our sense of security, knowledge, inspiration and even our circle of contacts.
Together we become: better managers
As a member, you will be one of us. Inspiring lectures and networking colleagues will keep you up to date and well prepared. You will be able to build strong ties to other managers who will understand you, your situation and your work. Together, you will be able to get answers to your questions and find solutions to your challenges. Most members stay attached to the network year after year and the reason to why so many decide to stay differs. Some say that it is because of the strong sense of community, others say that the network is an endless source of knowledge and experience that they feel that they can confide in.
For your company
Your competence development will be secured. You and your company will be kept up to date with everything new and important that occurs within your line of work. In order to keep our members and their coworkers well up to date, we organize numerous lectures in which we bring up current and requested topics. You are, of course, more than welcome to bring your coworkers to our inspiring evening events.
