The programme is designed for proucers who have been running their own company for five years + and/or who have worked five years + at senior management level in another company. We strongly recommend that two individuals at senior management level attend from each company.

How to sustain a viable business? What kind of leader am I? How to improve my team management? How to achieve a better life work balance?
Part of the programme is a special workshop by marketing strategist and business development consultant AC Coppens (The Marketing Catalysts), supporting the producers in their entrepreneurial effort - as companies founders, leaders or managers. With strategic scenario development tools and exercises specifically designed for their individual purposes, we will explore strategy options to sustain and develop their company in a challenging and competitive context.
Among the experts for this session will be EAVE consultant Linda Beath, who will take the EAVE+ participants to the next level of company management: how to hire and fire, cashflow management, how to structure your business, and other burning management issues.
EAVE management coach Michael Comyn (The Fearless Organisation IE) will work on the individual leadership qualities and resilience in private coaching sessions.
