To address this challenge Dr. Ben Tiggelaar developed the bestselling seminar MBA in One Day. Together with his team he analyzed the work of over 40 of the most prominent management thinkers in the world and packed their insights into a single powerful seminar. MBA in One Day started ten years ago and is now the largest selling one day-seminar in Europe.

"It is essential to provide training and leadership that reflects today's environment," said David Covey, CEO and co-founder of SMCOV. "Too much of the training on the market was developed in the sixties and seventies, and while these courses have updated packaging, the concepts are old and tired. They were great for their time but do not apply as well to the current reality."
"People need access to fresh new thinking. Our new partners have developed innovative content that provides solutions for companies and individuals looking to thrive in today's global work environment."
