Certified International Director (IDP-C)

Kees van der Vleuten has been certified in September as International Director. The INSEAD International Directors Programme (IDP) is a unique educational experience that aims to develop more effective directors. Set within an international context, the programme is aimed at current directors who bring specific competences and credibility to the boards on which they serve and at senior executives and professionals preparing themselves for a board mandate. The following recommendation came from the nomination committee from Insead France and ILA Luxemburg:


Dear Kees 

Congratulations are in order – Your paper – which was already very good – has become stellar -!

And an example for others (if we could only show it and remove its confidential nature).

The non-circulation is a detail – the quality of the paper is a tribute to you (intelligence, commitment, persistence …) .

So it is both very easy and very joyful for me to confirm your IDP-C status – Which means « IDP Certified » individual.
