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.
