Executive Leadership Development in Heritage Management Workshops




The Heritage Management Organization, in its efforts to be resilient in the middle of the coronavirus outbreak and consistent with its role of providing capacity building opportunities, decided not to postpone its forthcoming executive leadership programs. Taking into consideration the WHO measures which could last until the end of the spring or even longer, we have converted the in-person workshops into online trainings. For further information please contact us at the email [email protected].


The aim of HERITΛGE’ s workshops is to enable key heritage managers, through targeted training, to independently transform heritage assets from decaying objects of study to dynamic sources of learning, community identity and economic development. Since its founding, HERITΛGE has trained more than 900 individuals and organizations in more than 77 countries and is now on course to impact a quarter of global heritage hotspots by the year 2025. The Heritage Management Organization trains professionals in the management of heritage sites, independently of project specifics. Training practitioners in the essential skills and best practices, which define heritage management is at the heart of the HERITΛGE mission. HERITΛGE is privately funded and independent of any governmental authority.


“...the Executive Leadership Education program

has offered me skills essential to tackling the challenges of managing heritage properties, particularly world heritage sites in my country and internationally. This knowledge is a game- changer in our uneven fight against time, destruction and neglect. I think that this is an essential program … for all the top-ranking officials, including existing and next-generation managers in heritage management in my country.

The Executive Leadership Education program is a series of 3 to 6-day intensive workshops designed for practitioners who wish to advance the preservation and management of heritage sites. Aware of the fact that these individuals are most often too busy to attend any but the most focused and intensive programs, we have partnered with experts in each of the substantive fields, to provide quality focused workshops on a number of important aspects of heritage management:

  • Successful Fundraising for Heritage Managers
  • Interpretive Writing for Natural and Cultural Heritage
  • Strategy
  • Organizing Temporary Exhibitions from your Collections and Touring Strategies
  • Digital Tools for Heritage Management
  • Human Resource Management
  • Communication Strategy and Strategic Marketing for Cultural Organizations
  • Personal Interpretation for Natural and Cultural Heritage
  • Brand New Thinking for Heritage

Duration: Most of the workshops are delivered from 3 to 6 days in the broader area of Athens and work continues remotely for the next two weeks. At the end a Skype meeting is arranged giving feedback for all projects.


If you are interested in any one or more of the workshops do not hesitate to contact us at [email protected], or register to the workshop you would like to attend.



Vacancies for the workshops are limited, so please apply early.
