The Dutcham Orange Academy is a Talent Program towards young professionals who are active in the Dutch business community in Brazil.
Major Dutch companies selected their most promising talents to participate in this 8-weeks of training program focused on transformational learning for the next generation of global business leaders.
The program is composed by 8 different sessions on key topics such as the new company culture, leadership of tomorrow, personal branding, sustainability, and Diversity & Inclusion, and it was facilitated by top-level professors, researchers and academics, and senior business leaders who shared their knowledge and insights with the talents during different sessions and workshops.
Besides the concept of bringing young professionals together and letting them “share, learn and grow”, the Orange Academy also wanted to challenge the talents of the different Dutch companies around their personal vision for the future of Brazil, the role of companies & organizations and as future leader. Then during their “graduation session”, they also had to present the results of their projects developed during the previous months, and the winning teams were invited for the Talent Trip.
