15 Apr Female Leadership, Amsterdam Netherlands
AMSTERDAM, 15 APRIL 2010, BOOK PRESENTATION AT ENVY IN AMSTERDAM.
Together with Ed Hagedorn, De Baak, Pim van Tol, Business Contact, and Titia te Dorsthorst, Het Financieele Dagblad I hosted the presentation of my book, De essentie van vrouwelijk leiderschap. It was well attended, with about 100 women from Dutch corporate life as guests. I talked about the seven sins and virtues and why it is important for business leaders to disentangle from attachments that keeps us from moving on. I talked especially about Envy, hence the venue. It was a great honour for me that Dien de Boer-Kruyt accepted to receive the first copy of the book!
Dien de Boer-Kruyt has served as Supervisory Board member for multinationals, including Reed Elsevier and Sara Lee International for more than 20 years. I am particularly impressed by her way of bringing forth a message of service, humanity and compassion. Her ideals are clearly lived ones. She strikes me as a wise woman.
