Leadership Training

For more female leaders in top management:

We are driven by our belief in the meritocratic principle: Instead of continuously reverting to the same small, homogenous group, companies and organisations should recruit their talents from an extended, heterogeneous talent pool. Diverse leadership teams composed of the best available talents have proven to create more sustainable value for their organisations.

We see diversity as a driver for innovation in dynamic markets – in terms of not only gender but also nationality, cultural and socio-economic background, experience and age. Only if all these facets are considered, diversity will come into full effect and gain economic relevance.

We do not stop at talking – we actively drive diversity with our female leadership training programme. We are passionate about making companies more successful economically and ultimately creating more value for society. Extending the leadership talent pool is a deeply personal concern to us. That is why we created the ANNA+Cie training programme.

The female leadership training programme ANNA+Cie prepares selected female executive talents with ambition and inspiration for the successful, sustainable move into top management.

Four pillars characterise the ANNA+Cie programme:

The participants

Small, heterogeneous groups with a variety of experiences yet one common goal grow into a community during their ANNA year.


With first-rate international trainers and speakers, the ANNAs improve their entrepreneurial, strategic and leadership skills in four multi-day training modules spread over twelve months.

Cross Mentoring

Parallel to the parallel to the one-year programme, a mentor supports, challenges and motivates every ANNA throughout the year.


A strong personal business network built on trust is the foundation for a successful career. After the completion of the leadership training, the participants get access to the ANNA alumni network.


ANNA Alumni on the programme's impact

The next ANNA cohort starts 7th June 2021. You can find all further dates here.

Our Mentors

Cross mentoring is a vital aspect of the one-year programme for which we can count on the support of top executives with excellent management credentials and a modern approach to leadership from a wide range of industries. Their personal competence supported by their top level experience makes them ideal sparring partners for tomorrows female leaders.
