Healthcare leadership and management days Europe

Learn & Be Inspired by HLM Europe


Leadership, management essentials, strategy development and implementation, business model innovation and moving from financial numbers to action are key competencies, which new and experienced healthcare leaders need to excel in their daily and future challenges.


The HLME program is delivered in two 2.5-day modules that cover the basics skills all leaders in healthcare organizations and related industries need in order to excel in daily and future challenges.     

An international faculty of thought leaders from Europe, US and Asia with background from Ivy league level business schools, experienced C-level- and front-line leaders from major hospitals, medtech-, pharmaceutical- and consulting industries provide intense in-depth training.

The program is sponsored by the leadership academy of the University Hospital Brussels (UZ Brussel, Belgium) in collaboration with the visionary Voice Of Healthcare think tank (VOH, Delhi, India). 


Each year, we cover the following topics in highly interactive sessions with large and small group case discussions, overview talks and small group work:

  • Strategy & Change

  • Business Model Innovation

About HLM Europe

What is HLM Europe?

What is HLM Europe?
HLM Europe is a non-profit organisation that organises cutting-edge courses on leadership, management essentials, strategy development and business model innovation for healthcare leaders. HLME was founded by Prof Dr. Jan Gutermuth and Bart Van Den Kieboom who were intrigued by the lack of comprehensive management courses for mid- to high-level managers of the healthcare industry. The first seminar was held in September 2020 with international high-level keynote speakers who shared their insights and teachings with medical directors, department heads, HR leaders & healthcare administrators from numerous European hospitals.
