The role of the board is to think strategically about the future of your business or organisation. 

Is the governance system you have in place today, robust enough for the challenges and opportunities of tomorrow?  Do you understand your risks or how to manage them?  Do you have a succession plan that ensure you have the right balance of skills and experience on your board to lead your organisation into the future?  Do you have a high performance culture on your board?  Do your systems (eg. delegations, policies) enable management to deliver on your strategic goals, while ensuring appropriate accountability?  Are you clear about the role of management and the board?

There is not a ‘one size fits all’ solution to governance.  Every business and organisation is different, which is why we take a strategic approach to understanding your business and helping you to decide on the governance system that’s right for your business or organisation. 

We will work with you to understand your business, the challenges and opportunities on the horizon, and assist you to build a governance framework that ensures compliance, but which can respond appropriately as your business or organisation grows.

Our strategic governance services include:

Board and governance reviews
Board self-assessment
Succession planning
Policy and systems reviews
Director induction, mentoring and development
Strategic planning facilitation
