The Executive Outlook seminar we hosted last Thursday was attended by representatives from the top end of the Dutch business community. This year's theme was Soft controls in Governance and Business. Among the speakers were Herna Verhagen (PostNL), Diederik van Wassenaer (ING) and Princess Laurentien van Oranje.
Looking back on the seminar, Geert Raaijmakers - one the Executive Outlook seminar's initiators - says he was "very happy with the insights of the speakers and the contributions attendants made to the discussions. This year's theme has so many facets and no silver bullet to deal with them, so listening and learning from each other is really inspiring and helpful. Because when it comes to soft controls in governance and business, the soft issues are the hard issues."
