An élite group of senior managers from Europe’s leading fmcg and grocery retail companies will assemble at the University of St Gallen in Switzerland on September 13 to begin a course designed to equip them for leadership.
The group of 20 high flyers will attend a series of seminars at six university campuses across Europe and the US over the next 12 months in a new progressive management course developed by ECR Europe.
Modules will be run by leading academics and senior executives including Tesco chief Sir Terry Leahy, Procter & Gamble Europe president Paul Polman, Metro board member Zygmunt Mierdorf and Kraft director Peter Jordan.
Modules will cover broad issues such as leadership and managing change as well as supply chain topics including RFID, global commerce standards, collaborative planning, availability, consumer relationship management, pricing and promotional issues said organiser Professor Daniel Corsten.
