Board Services

There is a direct correlation between the composition, dynamic and working practices of the board of directors, and the success of an organisation.

International corporate governance has changed radically over recent years. The effectiveness and performance of boards is top of the agenda, as decisions are scrutinised and monitored closely by the media, stakeholders and company owners.

Our Approach

Boards of directors are expected to meet ever higher standards of professionalism and expertise.

We help clients to raise the bar, finding the right talent for both executive leadership and non-executive chair roles, to drive organisations in these changing times. Our quantitative and qualitative evaluation of boards provides an insight into board dynamics and areas for improvement.

The evaluation highlights how the chairman and CEO perform their roles and manage their responsibilities, and what contribution each individual board member makes. The analysis of both the composition, diversity and expertise within the board is also of central importance.

Why Choose Us

The work of today's boards of directors is transparent and in ever-increasing focus - the boardroom door is no longer closed and the demands and responsibilities of board members keep on growing.

Corporate governance is a dynamic area that is constantly under review, both locally and globally, to meet the demands and expectations of different stakeholders. Our Board Practice works with chairs, non-executive directors, chief executives and other board directors, providing a variety of services including board evaluations, board recruitment, incentive schemes for boards and leadership audits.

Each of our evaluation assignments is tailored to the needs and expectations of the board, and the distinct challenges the organisation will face in the future, in addition to taking previous reviews and assessments of the board’s performance into account.
