Training: Executive Leadership

7 aprilie - 20 aprilie

We are pleased to invite you to participate in our new Executive Leadership Programme for women in business. This programme has been designed in response to the Covid-19 pandemic that has had a considerable impact on SMEs in all regions. The purpose of this programme is to provide executive leadership support to a select group of senior businesswomen in Romania.


This training is aimed at enhancing the knowledge and skills of women in senior positions and to provide the support needed to strengthen their resilience, enhance the effectiveness of their response to the crisis and to deal effectively with constraints faced by women-owned SMEs.

Course participants

  • The Executive Leadership course is intended for women in senior positions in Romania. They represent SMEs in which they hold operational responsibility, or they are SME owners with overall financial and operational responsibility.
  • The training is aimed at women in business managing companies with an annual turnover of EUR 100 000+.
