What we do

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
