I really enjoyed hearing from the experts in corporate governance in Finland and having the opportunity to ask them questions regarding the differences between Nordic jurisdictions. Being an alumni of Boardman gives access to a lot of informative events that help to build one’s network here in Finland, which is important for expatriates. I would recommend the training to any senior-level expatriate executive who is interested in being considered for corporate board roles in Finland!

Boardman’s program provided practical insight into Nordic corporate governance, culture, board practices and issues such as financial reporting and risk management. Most importantly, it provided the platform for an incredibly valuable professional network which fosters dialogue, learning and growth. I am delighted to have participated in the program and proud to be a Boardman alumni.
