Before Thomas came to Hungary, he collected international experience in The Netherlands, France, Germany and China in different roles and responsibilities, shaping his intercultural experience and his leadership style.

Leadership is a multi-faceted concept, shaped by diverse contexts and evolving perspectives. Leaders need to understand that effective leadership requires navigating through various dimensions, adapting to situational demands, and inspiring followership.

When I got to know SEED, I was excited by its dynamic and multidimensional approach, encompassing comprehensive training, rigorous evaluations, and personalized mentoring and coaching. By embracing the complexity of leadership and fostering growth in all dimensions, SEED empowers individuals to excel as leaders in an ever-changing world. I am very excited to join the Faculty of SEED Executive School and contribute to this endeavour.
