The exclusive ‘Masterclass Board of Directors’ comprises several stand-alone topics aimed at raising the competences of experienced directors on actual board level topics. The Masterclass facilitators are selected for their ability to facilitate a deep dive into specific areas of competence. The Masterclasses thrive on sharing perspectives and experiences in groups, and debates on different viewpoints are to be expected.

For who?

The course can be followed by experienced directors and board members.

We limit the number of participants in this course to 30. Moreover you will be able to benefit optimally from the knowledge and experience of our lecturers. In addition, you will interactively test your own practical situation against those of your colleagues.

Expert level training: this training requires thorough prior knowledge of the subject.
