What our participants say

High Performance Boards 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 and how to engage with non-governmental organizations.

Michel Demaré Deputy Chairman, Louis Dreyfus Company, The Netherlands

Through role-plays or business cases within Team Dynamics for Boards, we’re made aware of what’s below the table and not at the top of the agenda. I’ll be able to use all the takeaways gathered, not only in board life but in all situations where group biases could come up.

Christian Gellerstad Vice Chairman, Credit Suisse, Switzerland

I gained a lot of inspiring insights, good networking with Digital Transformation for Boards and now I feel more confident to go through the digital transformation journey on my board.

Paola Ghillani Chairman of the Board, Paola Ghillani & Friends SA, Switzerland

Everything I took away from Finance for Boards will have an applicability in the board structure we have. I will, for sure, apply many of the concepts.
