A successful first edition of the new European Lotteries Corporate University ELCU

The new European Lotteries Corporate Unversity is EL’s response to the expressed demand for “basic training” for new entrants to our sector. The ELCU will be composed of different modules: Induction, Executive and Director.

The first edition of the new Induction model took place in Dublin in September. This 2½ day programme designed for new entrants and “cadets” with up to three years’ lottery experience from support level up to Senior Management level across all Units/Teams of a modern lottery company.

Almost 50 participants from 26 Lottery companies and Partners/Suppliers benefited from the experience. Each of them had less than three years of experience within the lottery sector. The level of the participants ranged from newly appointed Lottery Directors to Junior Product Managers.

Over two and a half days, participants experienced the full range and extent of lottery organisation, games, activities, channels and development, together with an extensive overview of all aspects of the regulatory and competitive environment of the total gaming market in which lotteries compete and operate in Europe.  All of this within the context of the strategy of EL and the model it stands for.

In addition to formal presentations, activities include Case Studies with plenty of interaction as well as Design Exercises with all participants presenting solutions to the class.

The content is delivered by an expert team of ten very experienced speakers and experts all of whom work, or have worked, as senior lottery officials or as advisors to lottery management addressing strategic and tactical gaming issues.

Summary: The new European Lotteries Corporate Unversity is the response to the expressed demand for “basic training” for new entrants to our sector. The ELCU will be composed of different modules: Induction, Executive and Director. The first edition of the new Induction model took place in Dublin in September. This 2½ day programme designed for new entrants and “cadets” with up to three years’ lottery experience from support level up to Senior Management level across all Units/Teams of a modern lottery company.
