EatThis. Future Leaders Week

For a resilient future of food, we need great future leaders. And now is the time to shape them! That’s why we organized the Future Leaders Week for talented, aspiring leaders from the companies that contribute to the EatThis network.

Our 5-day leadership program took place from 4-8 July 2022, and we were happy to be joined by 8 participants from 5 countries:

From left to right: Marcin Krason (Krason), Thijs Hoveling (Bejo) , Florian Steiner (Biohof Kirchweidach), Wolfgang Steiner (Gemusebau Steiner), Ed Smit (EatThis.), Sjors Beijer (Klasmann Deilmann), Jacko Obels (Capgemini), Mike Gitzels (Gitzels Plantenkwekerij), Matthijs Bodegom (Koppert), Milan Kula (Farma Bezdinek). 

The program was well received by our young and eager group, that enjoyed meeting peers but also being taken out of their comfort zone and having time for self development.

A few of the week’s highlights were learning about:
🧑🏻‍🤝‍🧑🏽 Corporate tribes with Jitske Kramer & Dolf Jansen at Koppert Cress
🤖 AI techonoly and autonomous growing by Blue Radix and Robovision
👨🏽‍🌾 Leadership and autonomy with Arko van Brakel at Koppert.
💡Architecture and design for society from Stephan Petermann at OMA
🎨 Self expression and problem solving by drawing with Willem Minderhoud of Flatland Agency.
💬 Campaigning and storytelling by Joeri Jansen of Roorda.
🏬 Hungry EcoCities with Rodolfo Groenewoud of In4Art.

With the feedback from the participants, we consider the 1st Future Leaders Week a great succes.

The next edition of the EatThis Future Leaders Week will be held in Costa Rica, November 2023. Keep an eye on our news items or sign up for our newsletter to stay updated!
