Center for Creative Leadership Revolutionizes Learning with New EMEA Campus in Brussels
Brussels, 1 April 2012 - On April 1st, the Center for Creative Leadership EMEA opened its new regional headquarters and training campus in Brussels. With its contemporary design, open-space concept and high-tech focus, the campus will further enhance the learning experiences of clients from around the world.
"This is a significant milestone in our history. After running our European courses in business centers for the past 20 years, CCL EMEA now has its own, state-of-the-art executive training space," says Rudi Plettinx, Vice President and Managing Director, CCL EMEA. "The campus is designed specifically to foster open collaboration and learning. We removed traditional walls in order to create a unique 'current of collaboration' between office and client, letting the interaction between our program participants, CCL faculty, and research and creative teams flow.
This new approach draws inspiration from the groundbreaking research on collaborative working trends recently published in Future Work. (www.FutureWorkBook.com) According to the book, the workplace of the 21st century will blend learning environments with working environments — leading to organizations that are agile, competitive, and capable of responding to changing market demands.
"Future Work makes the case that organizations are still operating within an Industrial Age paradigm, with only a small number having moved to the new era and new way of working," says Plettinx. "Our new campus positions CCL EMEA firmly in this new era."
The CCL EMEA campus extends the office of the future into the learning space of tomorrow. In addition to its open floor plan, the campus provides dedicated spaces for reflection, creative thinking and leisure. CCL will also make full use of such technology as iPads to ensure the campus is not only a paperless office, but a paperless learning environment.
CCL's new learning campus is located at Rue Neerveld 101 - 103 Neerveldstraat, B-1200 Brussels, Belgium.
