Leadership skills for port executives and captains of industry

Rapidly changing market dynamics present ports with major challenges. A mind shift is required to look critically at existing business models, while simultaneously developing new ones. Leading transitional change requires a different type of leadership. This is why Erasmus University Rotterdam and Port of Rotterdam are combining their knowledge and expertise to offer The Port Executive Leadership Circle. This five-day executive programme allows professionals from port authorities, port stakeholders or captains of industries, to be part of an ongoing cycle of learning journeys, while enabling collaboration with other ports in a growing international network of port executives.
