Programme overview

Embark on NEXT, a dynamic executive programme designed for seasoned professionals eager to redefine their life’s next chapter. In today’s whirlwind of professional demands, NEXT stands as a guiding light for those contemplating key life questions: purpose, impact, personal alignment, and the balance of health, wealth, and well-being. This programme is more than a learning experience; it’s an opportunity to shape your future with intention and insight.

Set in the vibrant SQUARE at HSG in St.Gallen, from April 19-21, 2024, the NEXT Summit offers an immersive two-month journey starting with a three-day intensive summit. Dive deep into discussions about unlocking potential, reshaping your professional landscape, and harmonizing personal aspirations with health and wealth strategies. Beyond the summit, the NEXT experience continues with two virtual days, enriching peer interactions and regular online sessions, all culminating in the annual NEXT Fellow Summit. This ongoing engagement ensures your journey of discovery and growth doesn’t just end with the summit but evolves into a sustained path of personal and professional transformation.
