Permanent Professional Training

Being prepared to govern the future

Change and discontinuity have become par for the course. The future will never be the same as the past. Technology is “racing” and we are in an era of globalization with parameters in constant change. Remaining up-to-date is fundamental for keeping up with the times, including for senior management, and for them The European House – Ambrosetti has created a service designed to meet the varied interests of those looking to take advantage of it.

Permanent Professional Training

In today’s competitive and globalized professional world where new technologies play an increasingly important role, those whose task it is to lead companies must, of necessity, dedicate time and resources to keeping their skills and competences up-to-date. A process that is not short-term, but continues throughout a person’s professional life using methods that offer real challenges and are compatible with daily activity, even for those whose appointment books would appear completely full and who believe they do not have time to devote to personal training. But, as they say in Anglo-Saxon countries: No time, no vision. No vision, no future.

PPT-Permanent Professional Training is the most extensive service dedicated to senior management in Italy and, in all probability, anywhere in the world. It is especially important because it marked the transition from a limited concept of “course” to a broader “service”.
It is an “open system” in which the themes are suggested and tailored on the basis of the interests of service subscribers, and each time the most expert speaker from Italy and the world is chosen to explore the given topic.

  • Professional training that is current and with the broadest international perspective;
  • A concrete contribution to developing leadership ability in individual professional areas and a superlative systemic perspective of the corporate organization;
