Open Doors Experiences

Open Doors gave me the confidence to further understand boardroom dynamics and how I can use my position as boardroom chair to strengthen and support the organization’s leadership as well as my fellow board members.
Yolisa Kani, Head of Public Policy, South Africa, Uber
Beyond the network, I also benefited from the classes — particularly the modules on finance, which went beyond the numbers to focus on the “why” of mechanisms and processes. Learning is a curve that never stops.
Nabou Fall, Managing Director, Vizeo
From the modules to instructors, this is a world-class training. While I certainly had a tremendous learning curve, I walked away knowing how I can be more effective in a board role.
Abam Mambo-Doh, Assistant General Counsel & Investigations Counsel - Asia Pacific, GlaxoSmithKline
