The usual INSEAD success formula - group dynamics, quality of professors, mix coaching and experience sharing as well as frameworks. The Professors were both absolutely excellent – very well done to pull this together .

Interesting and credible professors. Group coach was very professional and capable.

Refreshingly different approach to other Board courses with INSEAD setting and social aspect

The program provided me good insights on how to act as an NED. The variety of some theory combined with participant discussions added much value to the programme. Key strengths are Erik and Jaap who passionately drove the programme. Their experience and knowledge are real added value...

The board is not a black box for me anymore. The Matrix Board interaction and the GPS provide me insights how to act as an NED. The ... human aspect was also an eye opener for me.
