Winners of the 2021 IDN Awards

The INSEAD Directors Network (IDN) is an official Global Alumni Club, whose mission is to foster excellent corporate governance through networking, communication and self-improvement.

Our more than 1,500 Alumni work on boards around the world, sharing knowledge and managing businesses across all industrial sectors. They also provide invaluable support for Not-for-Profit organisations.

We want to celebrate this success by recognising some of our impressive members.

Outstanding Mandates

Winners were selected from over 100 mandates, shared via the quarterly IDN Board Position Announcements. This is the second year IDN spotlights outstanding mandates of our IDP-C members.

Selections were based on the size and importance of the organisations they represented, their global relationships and the position at the board, in combination with pursuit of INSEAD’s mission ‘Force for Good.’ Two winners were selected, each of which has an outstanding track record and has demonstrated the highest levels of integrity.
