Are you aware of the value a board could be adding to your company? As a director have you honed your skills so that you can add the most value to the boards on which you serve? Boards are often incorrectly thought of firstly as a practice reserved for big businesses and corporates, and secondly as a group whose key role is to ensure compliance. In reality, a board of directors is a critical business tool for privately-held companies and family businesses. In so doing they improve performance, increase company value and deliver a return to shareholders and other stakeholders. So we drive awareness about boards and in-depth and practical education surrounding their importance and how they function.
