This autumn, the third edition of the Dutch Seminar Governance took place. The central theme was “Governance in the eye of the storm”.
John Jaakke reflected on the theme from his extensive managerial and supervisory experience. Following that, there were two inspiring break-out sessions led by Inge Brakman and Remie Huijs. The day concluded with an armchair session in which Nick Bos also joined, followed by a nice networking reception.
We can look back on a successful day with excellent speakers, a clear narrative, and lively discussions. With an attendance of over 100 participants and positive feedback afterwards, we were very satisfied.
Some memorable quotes that have stuck with us:
“Be sharp in your perception but gentle in your judgment”, and also “it is easier to break an egg than to lay one” (John Jaakke)
“We must lean in to find a new balance” (Inge Brakman)
The seminar took place in the renovated MECC Maastricht, a beautiful venue, and was made possible by UMIO Maastricht University, Supervisie Limburg, Bestuurderscentrum, Orgfit, C3 Adviseurs en Managers, Rieken Oomen/Rijnconsult and HRTouchpoints.
Based on the positive feedback, we are already looking forward to organising the next edition in 2024.
