ANNA Network

Business Network for Women

Networking is the key

A resilient, multi-layered network built on trust is the foundation for professional and personal success. Even within your own cohort, you will quickly experience a spirit of cohesion and unconditional trust. Often this forms connections that last far beyond participation in the programme.

The Alumni Network

The Anna Alumni Network is open to all participants of all our programmes and creates a resilient, multi-layered and trust based network for yourself. Our alumnis are important sparringpartners, because no one knows our filosofies as well as those who are part of it. The  annual alumni events , which are organised in cooperation with the alumnis, provide space for exchange and encounters.

The ANNA business network for women

The ANNA+Cie business network for women

By exchanging experiences with other participants, our ANNAs have the opportunity to share their experiences directly with like-minded people. In our business network for women they can find connections to a wide variety of sectors and business areas. This view beyond one’s own viewpoint broadens the horizon. Our ANNA Business Network for women in leadership positions offers interdisciplinary insights that are not available in the immediate environment.

But why is a cross-industry exchange in a business network so important – especially for women? Diverse contacts are not only a human benefit, the creative input from other sectors is a valuable asset, because it offers a possibility to rethink and to set fresh impulses in one’s own professional environment. With a good business network for women, the right person can quickly be found for tasks or positions that need to be filled. Challenges are easier to overcome when you can draw on the experience of a strong business network for women, and you can talk to other female managers who may have already been confronted with similar issues. In the spirit of #womensupportingwomen, it is important to form strong alliances in a business network for women in order to establish what we have set out to do: Female Leaders for tomorrow.

The ANNA leadership development programm

Our female leadership development program

A rapidly changing world is constantly creating new demands on leadership. Our female leadership development is aimed to prepare you in the best possible way for these demands and provides you with the leadership skills needed to ensure good leadership in the long term. For us, female leadership development doesn’t mean to suppress femininity in order to recreate a male approach on management. On the contrary, female leadership development is about recognizing and sharpening specific female leadership qualities. In particular, these include empathy and enhanced communication skills. Classic role models often portray a seeming contradiction between career and family. But does it really have to be this way?

Female leadership development also means uniting these different poles and freeing oneself from preconceived judgments. It is a matter of developing one’s own leadership style that emphasizes on individual strengths and is not focused on gender specific roles. Today studies show that companies with women at the top are more likely to be successful than those led by male colleagues alone. Thus female leadership development is an important topic to prepare companies for the challenges of the present and the future.
