Empowering leaders, achieving success.
Our team is experienced in identifying and developing solutions to governance problems. We work with leaders to understand what is working well whilst identifying areas for improvement.
We walk alongside leaders to help them navigate people, legal, governance, and reputational challenges they face internally. We also aim to mitigate the risk arising from poor governance.
Our advice has been described as sage and candid, and we seek to provide clarity and consistency at all times. We usually offer to implement any recommendations we have made, and will help you prioritise those recommendations in a manner commensurate with risk.
Governance and leadership reviews
We specialise in improving governance. We help organisations develop meaningful strategies that connect with their teams, and review existing strategies to help maximise their impact. Where things need to change, we are unafraid to pose difficult questions.
We have conducted several governance effectiveness reviews that have resulted in transformation for organisations. We recognised that governance goes beyond policies and procedures, contracts and registers. In addition to assessing what you already have in place, we will also assess the leadership team’s effectiveness.
Independent governance audit
We offer a fresh pair of eyes because we recognise the import of governance, and the need to be ahead of not behind the curve. Leaders shouldn’t mark their own homework; it’s a sure-fire way to go wrong. It is indisputable that external auditors must be independent of their clients, and internal auditors must be independent of the colleagues they are auditing, however this is not always possible.
We believe a fresh pair of eyes can spot a range of issues, help leaders understand existing behavior, identify areas for growth, and turn things around early. Our comprehensive audit assesses structures, culture, governance, systems and processes which we evaluate against organisational strategy and mission.
