All IN-BOARD members are requested to sign the following statement.

As an alumni / alumni of INSEAD, I have a diversified, rich experience as a manager in an international and complex context. I am willing to let the company / institution benefit from my experience  I am aware of the effects that may arise from cultural differences and I know how to handle these.

I, ……………………………………… …………………………….. declare regarding my current and future supervisory roles as follows:

1. Independence and impartiality

  • I represent the interests of the company / institution and weigh it from the perspective of all stakeholders (such as shareholders, customers, employees and “residents”).
  • I am not affiliated with an organization, association or relationship (political, commercial, or otherwise) in such a way that there is a risk of conflicts of interests.
  • I am not bound by a non-competition clause that is conflicting with my duties and I can act without any hesitation or consultation.

  • To ensure equal and complete transparency with respect to all other Commissioners and / or Supervisors.
  • Clearly oppose my opposition, substantiated by argumentation, against the company / institution’s interests and accept the consequences of such opposition.• I am aware that, in a supervisory role, I do not have an “executive” role.
