You and your class

High Performance Boards (HPB) is for supervisory board members and chairpersons. The program welcomes family business members and is also ideal for teams from the same board seeking to improve their overall effectiveness.

Your class is individually put together through a selection process to ensure that you experience the most impactful learning with a truly diverse group of global peers. Your class will become a trusted resource, encourage your learning journey and surprise you in many unanticipated beneficial ways both during and beyond your classroom experience.

HPB 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.

HPB is not only about high performance boards, it is about high performance board members - it is about you. You will discover how to make a difference as a board member and have your board play a key role in  the corporate governance of your company.
