Events over the past year in Greece, Ukraine, China, Syria, France and Germany have put business leadership under scrutiny, so the opportunity to discover what top-level leaders have in their ‘leadership survival kits’ drew a large audience of business managers, leaders, professionals and students at the seventh annual Leadership Summit hosted by Rotterdam School of Management, Erasmus University (RSM).
A range of very human and personal stories demonstrating leadership were shared by Dorothee van Vredenburch of NN Group; Marijn Dekkers of Bayer AG, and Merel van Vroonhoven of AFM.
The audience was welcomed by RSM Dean Professor Steef van de Velde and the compère for the afternoon was Dutch TV journalist Twan Huys.
