Strategic Leardership for Sustainable Development, Diversification and Shared Infrastructure

Value Creation in Resource Rich Emerging Economies

Overview

It has never been more important for leaders to adapt to the changing business environments in which their organisations operate. From recognising the impact of global market places to economic and organisational sense making, the role of a leader in international business is a complex and evolving one.

Lonadek brings to you an Executive Leadership Programme that recognizes the dynamic environments in which businesses of the future will operate. The strategic leadership programme with the theme ‘Strategic Leardership for Sustainable Development, Diversification and Shared Infrastructure : Value Creation in Resource Rich Emerging Economies’ explores what you will need to succeed and remain relevant in the ever-changing business landscapes of international markets.

The four day high-level leadership programme offers leaders of organisations from Africa, Europe, the United Kingdom, the Gulf region and emerging economies; a unique opportunity to come together at the Hilton Waldorf Astoria, Jumeirah Beach, Dubai to study and exchange innovative ideas. The programme draws from the in-depth knowledge and appreciation of the Oil and Gas, Power, Infrastructure, Extractive and Energy markets by the Alliance MBS and Lonadek.
