Complimentary Webinars

Scaling the mountain requires focus, calm and patience. And in the current business and economic climate, we could all use a bit of extra strength to maintain these. We will be hosting a series of webinars that will help you scale this seemingly impossible mountain and reach the top unscathed. While each webinar will cover a core theme of governance, leadership and decision-making , we will also be addressing critical issues to discuss in the boardroom.

Independent Directors Increase EBITDA
In our 2019 non-executive and independent director survey for privately-held and family businesses, we asked respondents about independent directors on their board and if they would remove any in order to improve performance. 82 percent said they would not remove independent directors. Further to that, boards with at least one independent director are outperforming boards without any independent directors and reported an increase in EBITDA (Earnings Before Interest, Taxes, Depreciation, and Amortisation).
