I learned also a lot from my fellow GC’s
Great academic program with well esteemed professors and a good link to the daily practice of a General Counsel. The presentation with Richard Susskind made you really think about the challenges of the future. I learned also a lot from my fellow GC’s due to the variety of companies for which they work. There was also a good balance between learning, doing and having a bit of fun! – Sanoma, John Vogel, Director Legal Affairs

There was a great vibe between the participants
The GCEP was an intense mini-MBA, with top professors from various universities, who inspired and challenged me to think differently about the legal profession within companies. The sessions also offered me practical tips&tricks, as well as roleplays and interactive workshops. There was a great vibe between the participants, which offers me a valuable network. – HB Capital, Esther Ribberink-Nagel, Senior Legal Counsel
