REAL LEARNING@IMD
Dear Reader,

IMD was proud to welcome more than 400 executives at our recent Orchestrating Winning Performance program in Lausanne. What was the program like? In one word, amazing! See for yourself with highlights from the program on our Twitter hashtag #IMDglobalLeaders or checkout images on our Flickr account. You can also read summaries from the keynotes, including Kofi Annan (see below).

If all of this inspires you, you're in luck. We'll bring the experience to Singapore this November. Sign up before August 31 for an early bird offer.
Best regards,

The IMD Webletter Team
