In order to maximize the learning experience from the BOSS program – knowing people tend to focus on what they already know and do well, and all participants in the programme are holding a senior executive position in Brenntag with great achievement and accomplishment – before going for the programme, I encouraged myself to unlearn what I have learnt and am good at so that I have an open mind with topics, discussions and situations that I have never experienced or am even less comfortable with. This not only maximizes my learning but also puts my perspectives and skills to the test during the programme.
Moreover, the diversity of people involved truly makes this programme so unique. We have 13 nationalities from 24 Brenntag offices around the globe in the class bringing in all their various backgrounds, work experiences and work functions. With such diversity, BOSS provides an unsurpassed platform for peer-topeer learning, sharing of experiences and in-depth discussions of the most pressing business issues. It’s like putting global management talents from Brenntag in one classroom. I’m really proud and happy to be part of this group.
