Keynote+ Pre-conference Occasionally, if the topic and timeframe are appropriate, we would survey the audience (or a sample of it), pre-conference, anonymously via an online questionnaire on some few specific topics so that at Dr Herrero‟s keynote, this data can be shown as „their collective views‟. This is a possibility to bear in mid. Post-conference In some cases Leadership teams or part of them have requested to have a wrap-up private session with Dr Herrero to benefit from his insights and a discussion of the themes of the conference. This kind of „private Q&A‟ has proven highly successful. This follow up could happen during the conference time itself (sometimes not too convenient) or a few days or weeks later. A possibility to consider. Books Leandro Herrero‟s books are often „left behind‟ in company conferences as a momentum or as a reference for further use. Usually the publisher can provide a discount for bulk purchases. Please contact us if of interest.“Spectacular, a highlight. As interesting for us mangers as it would be for CEOs”

Executive leadership retreatsExecutive leadership retreats Keynotes The 3S Bootcamp for leaders An alternative four day executive, leadership retreat to master the art of introspection through silence only disrupted by group sharing of insights and guest speakers from the non-business world. Unfortunately blackberries, laptops and smartphones are completely banned in the premises for the entire duration of the retreat. Each participant is also coached twice by Leandro Herrero before, and after the retreat. The 3S stand for silence, stillness and solitude, at the core of many forms of old Western and Eastern religious tradition. This is not a religious or New Age retreat but we borrow the 3 traditional S which the modern leader is in desperate need of. It is as down to earth as Pascal‟s statement that “All of humanitys problems stem from mans inability to sit quietly in a room alone.”. He might have today referred to leadership. “Nothing like this in executive retreats. Apprehensive first. Now so glad I did it”
