Human Business Academy for Today's Economy


The Human Business Academy for Today’s Economy helps business leaders master the future of work by identifying, living and sharing purpose, ideas and inspirations in the Digital Age. For this purpose we offer workshops and retreats, consulting and an open business partner network.

 

The Academy

Philosophy

We believe in an inter-connected world and the power of human potential to rise above short-term business thinking and practice.

We believe that innovation and sustainable business value are direct results of conscious, holistic and human-centric leadership. We combine traditional conference and workshop setups with activities for the body, mind and heart, thus offering a holistic and fun experience.

Target Audience

We work with conscious business leaders to activate human trust and agility inside organizations while realizing sustainable business value.

Conscious business leaders can be individuals, companies or organizations alike. We welcome entrepreneurs, students, social workers, startups and investors, as well as established for profit and nonprofit companies and organizations – as long as they are open-minded and eager to put new ideas into action.

Locations

We want to offer an inspirational environment for our events.  This is why, whenever possible, they take place in or near beautiful natural settings.

WOW Practices

We want to help you grow your ideas and challenges into WOW practices.

WOW practices are practices that add value, practices that matter, practices that make a difference, practices that leave a legacy.  And those are practices that bring joy into our daily work life on all levels – individual, team and company.

Workshops

If you are interested in the future of work, want to share your challenges or ideas, learn from and with other likeminded people, and if you are eager to put new ideas into action while having fun, our Learning & Discovery Camps (a.k.a. HIP Camps  whereas HIP stands for ‘human inspired and inspiring practice’) are right for you.

Learning & Discovery Camps

Learning and Discovery Camps are a combination of traditional conference and seminar setups with activities for the body, mind and heart in an inspirational environment, thus offering a holistic and fun experience.

Outdoor Seminar

  • Inspiring speakers and topics of interest to participants
  • Networking with change and decision makers
  • Open Space for ideas to emerge
  • Community for design and rapid prototyping

Sessions take place in- and outdoor.

Learning and Discovery Camps Camps last from 1 day to 3 days, depending on the needs and desires of the audience.

Sustainable Results

The Academy offers to help you and your teams realize your newly created practices through an open coaching and consulting network as well as business partnerships.  This way we want to ensure sustainable results and encourage teams to share their results with the community and continue to learn from each other.
