Helga’s Take on Board: Accelerator program was terrific. Helga ensured a safe space to learn and discuss all the ins and outs of being an effective board member. I learnt lots and made really useful action plans for my improved board practice and the monthly meetings and regular follow-up ensured I carried these out. Another excellent aspect was the great network of women participants. While each had different experiences all were generous in their sharing - we learnt so much from each other and I believe will remain firm friends. Thank you so much Helga for making this extremely rewarding experience possible.
