Is this board governance program for me?

High Performance Boards (HPB) is for supervisory board members and chairpersons. The program welcomes family business members and is also ideal for teams.

Team opportunities

Why not use the program to kick off a new initiative in your board or help address a particular challenge? Increase your board’s effectiveness by sending several directors together and take advantage of an additional customized team session to dig deeper into common challenges you face.

Special team offer

Boards who wish to send four participants together on the program, have the opportunity to add a fifth participant at no additional cost. We also offer, upon request, an additional customized team session, during which you can explore more in depth the specific challenges you face.


3.5 days. Offered five times a year.
