Next Generation: Training of the leader generation

Thaís Lino Cardoso Business Development

Succession and training of future leaders are, at present, two of the main concerns in family companies and businesses. Their effective education and training and succession management have a direct impact on the success of the transition from one generation to the next. And how do you efficiently educate your company’s future leader? Once that person has been identified, education is the next step to create a trained professional qualified to tackle the challenges he/she will have to face in today’s dynamic world.
The courses and training programmes offered by BBVA in Switzerland are an opportunity to foster their entrepreneurial spirit and provide young entrepreneurs with the chance of networking.
The main advantages of these leadership and entrepreneurship courses addressed at second and third generations include the opportunity for personal and professional transformation, access to experienced faculty members and the opportunity to build up a network with young entrepreneurs from all around the world. This finely tuned offering is supplemented, moreover, by furthering their knowledge of finance and a tried and tested preparation for the future transfer of the company from one generation to the next. In addition to seminars and exclusive training days aimed at creating business and entrepreneurial value, leading companies from their sectors offer open days to show how they manage innovation, dynamism and talent in their offices. It is a unique opportunity for young businessmen and women and students to learn how these dynamics can help forge bonds and alliances with important collaborators for a project to be undertaken correctly. At BBVA in Switzerland, we believe that one of the aspects that enriches innovation and entrepreneurship is to interrelate personally with highly similar profiles in an environment where the geographical diversity of their origins, their own ideas and a shared innovative spirit and attitude can all come together. Hence we have designed a series of exclusive, high-calibre activities and events that provide a large network of contacts. We likewise believe that socialisation between academic sessions is fundamental.
The students attend VIP category dinners and parties, cultural visits and events in the centre where the course is held.
With programmes that start from the values and strengths of family organisations, we support future generations through finance, leadership and entrepreneurship courses in New York, Madrid and Silicon Valley. Unique experiences like this offer young leaders the possibility of broadening their perspectives and acquiring the necessary skills for today’s business world. A unique opportunity exclusively for clients of BBVA in Switzerland.
