A WORD FROM ONE OF OUR PARTICIPANTS

THE EXPERIENCE OF ANKE

"The program has increased my impact as an expert" "The Advanced Program for Sustainable Entrepreneurship in the Real Estate sector has not only made clear to me that I am doing the right things, it has also given me new perspectives and frameworks. This has increased my impact as an expert, both in the market and within my own organization. The insights help me to sharpen the vision that sustainable entrepreneurship is “the way to go”. Especially to our customers. I can also substantiate my role as ambassador within Rabobank more firmly. “The more we focus on sustainable business, the more future-proof our real estate portfolio becomes”, is my story there. The mix of theory and practice in the choice of teachers is very good. I think the program appeals to both insiders and professionals who have no idea of what is going on in the field of sustainability in the real estate sector. From the reactions of fellow participants who belonged to the latter group, I noticed that the program content was a real eye-opener for them. " Anke Verhagen Business Developer - Sustainability and Circular Economy - Real Estate Finance - Rabobank

A WORD FROM ONE OF OUR CORE INSTRUCTORS

"The real estate sector is in transition across the board. One of the main challenges is sustainability. It is essential that the sector innovate toward new products, services, and processes. This doesn't just create sustainability challenges at the buildings level, but also in urban areas and even entire cities. The new corporate strategies and business models form a sustainable connection between financial and social gains." Drs. Menno Maas
