"Coming from the world of Service Providers, being a director in a client company is challenging. The ILA Certification with its different modules, especially INSEAD-IDP, has allowed me to engage with fellow board members in a different way and increase the level of experience and skillsets, adding credibility as well as diversity to the board. Through the certification, the stigma of a “director as a service” is removed from any potential candidate."

"In choosing to become an independent non-executive director (iNED), at the age of 58, I felt it was important to stimulate my thinking on how to perform this new leadership role effectively. I wanted to think deeply about how I would carry out this role, the behavior I would display, and gain some understanding of the broader context in which boards operate and the responsibilities that come with an iNED mandate.
I believe the combination of INSEAD and ILA training already serves, and will continue to serve, me well and recommend this program highly and without reservation to all iNEDs, aspiring and incumbent.”

"Upon my appointment as non-resident INED on a Fund Board, I took the ALFI-ILA introductory course on roles and responsibilities of fund board directors to acquire an initial flavor of business practices that would allow me to operate competently within the Luxembourg business community. When, one year later, I completed the INSEAD International Directors Programme, with its strong multi-dimensional conceptual knowledge, I realized that I was still in need for practical local knowledge to guide me in the fulfillment of my director’s duties. The ILA Essentials course definitively anchored me more strongly in the local context – and also made me appreciate the broader offering of ILA training activities which I continued to take with unchanged enthousiasm."
