Kerry Taylor, EVP MTV International, Chief Marketing Officer, Viacom UK

The INSEAD CTAM Europe programme was an incredible experience. The quality of the professors, the standard of teaching, the interactive group teaching all made it an invaluable experience with insight and learning that can be applied to your working life.

I feel, without doubt, a stronger leader as a result of the course. The cohort was also fantastic and the programme offered a wonderful opportunity to learn from other business leaders. It was also a wonderful experience to spend time on the INSEAD campus in the beautiful setting of the forest.

The food was excellent and the programme of wine tasting, forest walking and fine dining made the whole week a truly valuable and unforgettable experience.

I would not hesitate to recommend this programme to anyone looking to take their business learning to the next level.
