Organic business needs organic leadership

Starfish Organic and Timeli presents

The organic business leadership academy

Business as usual is not an option – it is time to refit your purpose.

The Organic Business Leadership Academy is an initiative of  Timeli and Starfish Organic. We develop organic business leadership courses for companies and individuals active in the organic business sector who want to expand and deepen their understanding of organic agriculture principles. Organic business needs organic leadership. Organic is different for a reason. And organic business leaders need to think differently. At OBLA, we help you find your organic differentiator.

the Organic Business Leadership Course returns to the Netherlands!

We are happy to launch our second OBLC in the Netherlands this November – join other leaders, refresh your organic knowledge, rethink your business approach and refine your strategic direction.

Why do we offer this course?
Organic businesses face a challenging period. Explosive market growth, tightening regulation and control, growing interests of multinationals and corporations, societal demand with critical citizens and the ongoing effects of the climate crisis offer us challenges as well as opportunities. To deal with these, organic businesses must stay in the lead. This course is designe for those who are either new in the organic sector, or already work in the organic business sector and desire to deepen their knowledge and understanding, their expertise and their network.

What is the aim?

The aim of this course is to create organic business leaders who can represent and promote organic values and principles, challenge the persistent myths on organics and do so with leadership and authority.

How does it work and what will you learn?

The OBLC Basic Course brings attendees together on 5 afternoons over a period of 6 weeks. In this period, we take you through the history and principles of organic to the current state of the market, the challenges of agriculture and food systems in a time of climate crisis and equip you with the tools to face the future and contribute to global regeneration while developing your business sustainably. We achieve this through a blend of dynamic knowledge transfer,  interactive group participation and periods of self-study and reflection. The detailed program and curriculum can be found here.
