Stef Lauwers, CEO of Partena Ziekenfonds and partners, tried to enrol in Vlerick’s Advanced Management Programme on two separate occasions. Unsuccessfully so.

Fortunately, he lived to tell the tale, and as we all know three is the magic number. We reckon the Lauwers family’s motto is probably along the lines of “the future rewards those who keep going”.
