THE POWER OF PURPOSE
12 October 2018
Purpose is a key need for human well-being – but it’s becoming ever more recognised, and crucial, in business.
Why? Purpose is the energy that empowers organisations to thrive as they tackle the many challenges facing them. More importantly, purpose positively impacts businesses: recent research from EY indicates that purpose-led organisations perform 42% better than those that are simply ‘in business’.
Often that strong sense of purpose comes from a company’s leaders. Leaders with purpose have the power to create enlightened, agile, and resilient organisations – businesses with the power to make positive change in the world.
At the RSM Leadership Summit 2018 on 12 October – the 10th anniversary of the launch of this flagship event! - you will hear from the purpose-driven leaders of international business, each of them rooted in the Netherlands, each known for their vision and powerful sense of purpose:
- Marlies Dekkers, entrepreneur, author and fashion designer
- Vincent van den Boogert, CEO of ING Nederland and Marketer of the Year 2018
- Michiel Muller, founder and CEO of Picnic, Tango, Route Mobiel
- Shaun Tomson, entrepreneur, author, world-champion surfer
- Daan Stam, Endowed Chair in Leadership for Innovation at Rotterdam School of Management, Erasmus University
These business leaders, joined by some of RSM’s top academics, will share their purpose-led approaches – from the disruptive to the innovative – at Rotterdam’s iconic Van Nelle Factory on 12 October 2018. Please join us for an exciting, inspiring day of active learning, sharing, and networking with the entire RSM community. We look forward to seeing you there!
Date: Friday 12 October 2018, 9:30 - 16:00
Location: Van Nelle Fabriek, Rotterdam
