The Grooa Inspiria Leadership Center is a delightful destination in the Dutch countryside where you can experience leadership training in an inspiring and relaxing environment, surrounded by a bucolic landscape.
Located in Nord Brabant, just 30 minutes drive from Eindhoven, this new sustainable Learning Facility, powered by solar energy, restructured using recycled material and surrounded by a protected green area with woods, forests and wild flower fields, started in pilot mode during March 2017, with an initial offer of workshops and one-day courses.
The Center is intended to be a point of attraction and reference for a disrupting dialogue around "Leadership Development In the 4th Industrial Revolution Era". While being mainly dedicated to the Grooa Training courses, retreats and workshops, we also wish to make the Center available for meetings and events on broader themes relevant to the Brainport and international innovation community of interest .
