"An amazing program filled with intellectual sharing from the experienced professors and prestigious guest speakers, and the valuable interactions among the professional female leaders from diverse industries and geographies. The content and cases were very well designed to inspire the participants how should we position ourselves in the board and the role and responsibilities that a good INED should play. Wonderful experience!”

Agnes Chan, Managing Partner Ernst & Young Hong Kong

"Through practical case studies, as well as experience sharing with eminent speakers and peers, the programme has enhanced my understanding of board directorship and how to make a difference in today’s corporate world."

Ruth Rowan, Chief Marketing Officer, Avanade

"I’m delighted that I took the initiative to join this course and would encourage anyone, male or female to think more broadly about how we invest in developing ourselves to the same extent that we consider how we develop our teams and our businesses. It’s only going to be win-win for everyone."

“This is a great program that brings professional women together from different walks of life, different professions to share and learn from each other, the power of woman is being amplified by our guest speakers Rachel Duan and May Tan. WDP provides practical insights and real business cases covering board fiduciary responsibilities, ethical decision making and best practices of effective board governance. I like the final Boardroom dynamics simulation to complete the course”
