The Stanford Graduate School of Business Executive Program for Non-Profit Leaders was energising, enlightening and intense. The curriculum and faculty were brilliant and provided an elegant and effective mix of theory, activities that pushed us out of our comfort zones, and practical tools we could take home and implement straight away. We covered a huge amount of ground, including strategy, communication, storytelling, good decision-making, effective collaboration, crisis management, scaling, and blocking bias - I’m using my new insights and information every day. The program also gave me connections with 62 intelligent, energetic leaders who are as passionate about their causes as I am about mine. Meeting and learning from them gave me a shot of energy that I appreciated deeply. We are in regular contact via WhatsApp and LinkedIn groups, sharing notes, thoughts, questions, answers, and resources. I now have a remarkable and inspiring support network I feel I could pick up the phone to anywhere in the world and ask for help and advice.
