Executive Leadership Development in Heritage Management Workshops

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 2000 individuals and organizations in more than 100 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

All programs lead to certification from HERITΛGE and are based on the instructors’ evaluation according to the following Marking Criteria:
80-100 (High Distinction) | 70-79 (Distinction) | 60-69 (High Pass) | 50-59 (Pass) | 49 or below (Fail)
