What we do

The safety and health of our Members are important to us. We follow the instructions of the government in the planning and execution of our meetings. Please read our COVID-19 protocol before coming to an event.

ELP is based on the belief that leaders learn best through dialogue, and that dialogue is most valuable when it is conducted among equals in a setting that encourages openness and vulnerability. ELP organizes three types of meetings, all of which are characterized by the safe environment under the Chatham House rule, participating leaders from a variety of industries and disciplines and the presence of dialogue:

  • ELP Leadership Dialogues

    ELP Leadership Dialogues are at the core of the ELP-program. They are the business edition of meaningful conversations with friends at the kitchen table.

    • Small-scale interactive meetings from 17:00 until 21:00
    • Introduction of a leadership dilemma, often by a well-known leader
    • Professionally moderated dialogues while enjoying first-class dinner
    • Location De Nieuwe Poort, Amsterdam
  • ELP Leadership Meetups

    ELP Leadership Meetups are short, monthly meetings, which offer an efficient way to stay up-to-date on the latest developments in leadership and to take advantage of the diversity and depth of our community.

    • One of the leaders in our community shares his/her expertise or dilemma
    • On the first working day of the month from 08:15 to 09:30 or from 16:15 to 17:30
    • Location De Nieuwe Poort, Amsterdam
