“Transitioning Your Career: From Expert to Leader” – a panel discussion and real stories for those thinking about making this exciting journey

The transition into a leadership role means facing important new challenges. Those challenges may be magnified if you’ve risen to the top through expertise in your area or industry but haven’t had the chance to lead a larger team or implement company-wide objectives. 

Over the past 10 years 63% of our IEMBA participants came from technical backgrounds including engineering, sciences, law, and IT. Their journeys from technical experts to global business leaders are particularly inspiring. This panel discussion shines light on their journeys and looks into what sets them apart.

From expert to a leader: take this journey with us and be inspired by real-life experience of how to smoothly transition from being a technical expert to being a global business leader and what skills you need for a successful transition.

What key factors will contribute to your success in this endeavor? What strategies can you follow to become an effective leader? What are the biggest challenges in the process? These and many more questions will be answered in this BMI Brussels online panel discussion – a conversation between new leaders and an HR expert. 

The event will take place on Tuesday, January 19th at 12:30 CET (Brussels time) or 13:30 Vilnius time via ZOOM.

Please register no later than January 18th here

 The panelists of the discussion:

  • Jurgita Lemesiute: Managing Partner at People Link (HR company)
  • Amina Laanan: Head of Manufacturing (GSK, pharmaceuticals)
  • Marcelo Godinho: Head of OEM Digital Solutions, Europe, Middle East, Africa & India (Bridgestone EMIA)
