FOBE Solutions & All Food Consulting are co-creating a leadership development program in the areas of Quality & Food Safety.

The purpose of this high-level learning and development program will be to get Quality and Food Safety professionals ready for the next level of leadership and challenges, and create opportunities for themselves and the business.

In a very dynamic world where globalisation, digitalisation, automation and growth in local and international trade are creating new challenges and opportunities for governments, corporations and even individuals, it is of the upmost importance to ensure Quality and Food Safety leaders are equipped to understand, anticipate and respond to these challenges adequately and in a timely manner.

This leadership program (QFSL 2.0) will take participants through learnings and interactions in three major areas: strategic thinking, leadership development and Quality & Food Safety excellence.

The face-to-face program will be delivered by industry recognised Quality & Food Safety leaders providing knowledge and insights, using a blended approach of collaborative learning, case studies, best practices, self-learning techniques and coaching.

This leadership program is exclusively designed for dynamic Quality and Food Safety Leaders who want to differentiate themselves and make a difference to their business and society.

The program is produced by D.V. Darshane and Marc Cwikowski, with a planned launch in Q3-Q4 2019.
