Masterclass on Corporate Governance: Unveiling the Realities

Date: First Thursday and Friday of September, 19 & 20 2024

Location: Curacao


About the Masterclass:

In the midst of a deluge of offerings for courses and masterclasses on corporate governance, one might easily find themselves questioning their efficacy in addressing the mounting challenges of mismanagement within corporations. If you've attended numerous such programs over the years, you might have encountered a gap between theory and practice, leaving you skeptical about their real-world impact.

However, our upcoming masterclass stands apart with a unique approach that transcends mere theoretical and ethical frameworks. We delve deep into the pragmatic realities of corporate governance, offering insights derived from seasoned professionals who have navigated the turbulent waters of the corporate landscape and emerged fortified.

We're thrilled to announce Marilieke Engbers as our keynote speaker. With over two decades of experience as a consultant in leadership and change, Marilieke brings a wealth of knowledge to the table. She defended her dissertation on "How the Unsaid Influences Strategic Decision-Making in Boards of Directors" on October 14, 2020, at the Vrije Universiteit in Amsterdam. Marilieke's expertise extends to teaching strategy realization for the Vrije Universiteit's controller program and providing guidance to boards of directors and supervisory boards on various governance matters.

In December 2021, Marilieke co-authored the book "Amongst Directors: How the Unsaid Influences Decision-Making in the Boardroom," further elucidating the dynamics of decision-making within corporate governance.
