On The Apollo Program

"I found The Apollo Experience in Houston to be a well-designed and well run program that attracted an intriguing and diverse group of participants. My experience has not only increased my awareness of the value of Experience to Lead provided leadership efforts, but also further strengthened my appreciation of the full range of services and 'enablement' provided by and through The Conference Board.

This was one of the best experiential learning experiences I have had during my nearly 45 year professional career.”
