SVASE' "Learn from a Legend" is a unique program that brings together a world-class Founder or CEO with a maximum of 6 entrepreneurs. During an intensive three hour conversation over dinner, they discuss what it takes to be a CEO: personal leadership issues, the practical realities of running a company, and the quality of relationships that often define their future business life. It can be a deeply bonding experience, which often extends well beyond the dinner.
