The oikos Presidents and Advisors Retreat 2008 has been an excellent experience - meeting advisors from the local chapters and oikos International gave me the feeling of being part of a great network of change makers for sustaianability. (Clemens Gerteiser, Commercial Director Leipzig International School, oikos International Advisor)
The oikos Presidents and Advisors Retreat is an annual two day event that brings together oikos Advisors and Local Chapter Presidents from across the oikos network in order to:
oikos Advisory Councils do not only provide support to active oikos members in the form of feedback, sustainability competence, access to social networks and managerial know-how. Advisors also turn into motivating role models, bearing the organizational memory that is so crucial in sustaining oikos Local Chapters.
In that context, oikos places further emphasis on moving forward the important roles of the Advisors and supports Local Chapters in building up Advisory Councils that help them increase impact.
The oikos Presidents and Advisors Retreat is designed to further leverage the great potential oikos Advisors offer to the organisation and to ensure that their time and commitment leads to a maximum impact within oikos.
