Testimonials & Past Leadings Participants
It was a great opportunity to step back and reflect on Board responsibility. I kept the Board program with a lot of ideas for immediate actions.
The board program addresses the all-important question of a board's 'sense of purpose' by exploring in detail the chairman-CEO and the board-executive committee relationships. Key takeaways for me include how to optimize the composition of a board, how to engage with non-governmental organizations and how to leverage social media as a new and powerful channel of communication
This Board program was a fantastic program, very stimulating lectures. The speakers did not focus on general aspects they always showed examples of real life. Good speakers catching the attention of the people, and stimulating broad discussion. Excellent learning environment.
HPB has helped me to better manage board issues. It broadened and refreshed my perspective of the relationship between the board and management, and provided useful and practical insights from live case studies.

The board program is very inspirational. It points in the direction of board's roles and responsibilities which are critical for success and effectiveness but which are either overlooked or taken for granted - a dangerous "complacency".
