IMPACT LEADERSHIP PROGRAMME
FOR DEPARTMENT STORES

Developing the Next C-Suite Leaders

In partnership with Intercontinental Group of Department Stores

WHAT IS YOUR ESSENTIAL IMPACT AS A FUTURE C-SUITE LEADER?

How can your department store business survive and thrive in the future?


We are at a critical juncture for the department store industry worldwide, and only the strongest and most innovative will survive. This is a deep concern for me and I worry that there are not enough forward thinking, innovative leaders in our industry who will be willing to risk changing the status quo and will work to create a new model to attract consumers away from the alternative options that are performing well today at the expense of department stores.

Terry J. Lundgren - retired Chairman and CEO, Macy's, Inc.

The GDI Impact Leadership Programme for Department Stores is a leadership development programme bringing you together with department store leaders from around the world, with the potential to take on greater leadership responsibility at the C-suite level in the near future.

Within this programme, open to leaders of all department store companies worldwide, you will define your impact leadership profile as an executive leader, integrate effective forward-thinking tools and develop your full leadership potential as a future shaper by having foresight and insight, reflecting and consciouscly making a transformational impact.
