What is ME Executive Day?

ME Executive Day was built on the idea of creating an extended face-to-face knowledge-sharing and networking experience.  

Bringing together decision-makers from top500 companies in the Netherlands, we provide a platform for leading industry experts to connect, establish lasting business relationships and share memorable conversations in a more casual setting.


The advantages of building a purpose beyond profits strategy to keep finance professionals striving!
Henry van der Geest, Director Finance & Control, Schiphol Group

Purpose beyond profits, a relatively new term in the world of business. More and more businesses are realizing that it is not only about creating revenue growth in the short term but more about the long-term benefits that prioritize purpose over profits, creating social value, meaningful work, and last but not least feeling empowered at work.

During this keynote, we will take a look at the Schiphol Group’s best practices of creating purpose within the finance department.

Purpose-driven Leadership | Help your workforce find purpose or watch them leave
Ingrid Tigchelaar, CFO, Albron
Ronald van Hees, Financial Director, CZ
Peter van Wouwe, CFO, Lamb Weston

During the last 2 years, originations are being challenged by finding and retaining the right talent. Due to this challenge, there is an overload of job vacancies. But to what degree does finding purpose in the organizations play a role?

In this panel discussion, we will sit together to discuss the impact of finding purpose. But more importantly how to influence the purpose of your workforce by:

    • Discover the purpose
    • Knowing what motivates and drives your workforce individually and on group level
    • Transforming midlevel managers into purpose-driven leaders
    • Unleashing the positive energizers

Psychology beyond numbers and change | Understanding the basic principles of organizational behavior
Steffen Giessner, Department Chair Organisation & Personnel Management & Professor of Organisational Behaviour and Change, Rotterdam School of Management, Erasmus University

Organizational behavior is the academic study of how people interact within groups. The principles of the study of organizational behavior are applied primarily in attempts to make businesses operate more effectively.

During this session, we will answer 20 basic questions about organizational behavior that you as a CFO should know! The academic will try to explain these 20 basic principles in a rapid-fire Interview where he has a certain amount of seconds to explain every one of them.

How to master the art of storytelling? Building the skill-set to become a Chief Storytelling Officer
Guido Everaert, Workshop facilitator

Most CFO’s and financial decision-makers feel confident around formulas, profit & loss statements, and balance sheets. But to what degree do they master the art of storytelling? It is important to be one of the most integrity-worthy people in the organization in your role, especially because you are the one mastering the skill of finance and can inform people in the organization and especially in the board how the company is doing at this very moment.

Storytelling is a crucial skill for all high-performing CFO’s. We will give you a high speed masterclass in:

    • Becoming a trustworthy storyteller
    • Learning more on the essentials and importance of storytelling
    • Learning to explain an organization’s strategy for growth in a way that’s compelling to a wide and complex mix of stakeholders
