Reactions of participants in the 2011 seminar
Gerard Paulides, SHELL International Europe, CFO Vice President Strategy & Finance
“This class does an excellent job for senior business leaders to understand new corporate governance, the dynamics between the CEO, the Chairman and other members of the Board and to understand how audit, corporate governance nominating & compensation and risk management committees can function best. It makes it easy to appreciate board, executive team and shareholder perspectives in a US and European setting”.
Maarten Hage, DNB, Head of Governance and Accountancy
“The program was very insightful and inspiring. The combination of practical case studies and academic learning points were very useful to bring back home to my daily profession. Meeting the other participants and the professors was also an enriching experience.”
