BoardMatch Leaders is THE definitive roadmap for all who intend to travel the “road of good intentions”; aligning the heart with reality. The comprehensive program, real life examples and contagious speakers allowed me to experience what to expect. Especially loved the self-assessment in order to determine how I best contribute.
