If you could explain the GPA part, and highlight the strengths of your professional side, you have a good chance. I'm assuming you have strong accomplishments at work. You haven't mentioned if you want to continue in your current role or switch to something else.

Aren't you looking at other schools?

Check this out --> (link). A US-based consultant (from a reputed international consulting firm) will run the application simulation process free of cost.

You have a significantly competent profile that will appeal positively to INSEAD adcom. Except for your undergrad GPA (however you have demonstrated your academic capacity to handle MBA program by scoring well on GMAT), I do not see anything in your professional history that can hold you back from making it to Insead classroom.
Therefore your success depends more on your post MBA goals and how well you can articulate them through your application essays.
Should you have any specific questions, I shall be happy to answer them to the best of my ability and knowledge.
