The CEO Programme aims to provide CEOs (including Managing Directors, Secretary Generals and Director Generals) of cancer organisations with tailored opportunities to network and discuss with peers the specific challenges they are facing. The programme is offered exclusively to CEOs of UICC member organisations.
Following feedback from senior leaders of cancer organisations, UICC first launched its tailored offer for CEOs at the 2016 World Cancer Congress (WCC) in Paris. Over 120 CEOs registered to take part to a private networking reception, three exclusive lunch-time workshops and were signposted to CEO-relevant sessions handpicked from the main WCC programme.
This was followed by regional CEO events called Leadership in Action aimed at providing platforms for CEOs to come together and discuss challenges and solutions specific to their regions.
CEO-tailored sessions are once again being planned for the 2018 World Cancer Congress in Kuala Lumpur, so watch this space for developments.
The next Leadership in Action meeting is planned for the Latin American region and will take place on 13 November in Mexico City, prior to the World Cancer Leaders Summit.
