The International Leadership Forum helps internationally minded, C-level executives lead and succeed in Danish companies.

The Forum links Aarhus’ international business community with Aarhus University’s School of Business and Social Sciences (BSS) for a series of five annual events that provide a better understanding of Danish leadership, business, and social culture and help participants build a strong network.

Events are held in the late afternoon, i.e. at noteworthy cultural venues and inspiring companies in and around Aarhus. Each event includes ample time for informal networking. ILF also regularly holds open events that give interested executives a chance to meet current members and experience the network firsthand.

At events, ILF members have an opportunity to:

  • Learn more about topics like Nordic leadership, managing multicultural teams, personal development, sustainability, and economics – all with a particular focus on what these topics mean in a Danish context
  • Create ties to the research and teaching community at Aarhus University
  • Discuss personal leadership and career challenges in a discreet and private environment
  • Discover resources and tactics for personal growth and career development
  • Share solutions and insights with other members and guest speakers who share a similar level of responsibility and experience
  • Meet and socialize with Danish business, educational, cultural and social leaders
  • Gain a better understanding of topical and future business issues in Denmark
  • Network and expand business and social connections beyond international groups through ILF’s affiliation with other Danish business networks

ILF is open to both expat leaders and Danish citizens with a particular interest in international leadership and business issues.
