"The session on Wednesday was a true inspiration to me. It was just what I needed at this time. The speakers you chose shared great insights on what NED roles they'd done, why they'd chosen them and how they got them. I also liked the Q&A session where the panel shared their hints on how to demonstrate what you will bring to the organization." March 2016
