and feedback sessions
We are the first service provider to offer individualised reports for every board member. We help each board member to understand how they can become more impactful and make a greater contribution to the overall performance of the board.
Designed specifically for your board. We tailor each group session following the board evaluation process. We outline an agenda, plan and agree a process – all in collaboration with the project owners.
We prepare and discuss the results with your board. We detail key findings and make suggestions for focus areas to implement.
Where desired, we can provide input for disclosure of the board evaluation text within your annual report, drawing on best practice examples.
We provide insights into our proprietary research and how all board members can use the 7-Hallmarks of Effective Boards. The board – as a team – will gain vital insights into the levers they can use to improve working practices and increase effectiveness and performance.
