Board performance is more than just bottom-line figures. When last have you had a qualitative and quantitative look at what is going on within the board, or at governance levels? And when last have you had someone take an objective view of it? Our board diagnostic includes interviews with board members, as well as qualitative and quantitative output providing a roadmap for the future.
Not only large companies benefit from having a board. Many smaller businesses find themselves reaching scalability by implementing a board. Find out whether your business will benefit from having a board, or if you already have a board in place, determine how well it is performing. Use the insight to elevate your board and business.
Are you an entrepreneur whose business had been on an upward trend for some time and is now plateauing? The time could be right to appoint a board of directors to elevate your business, build sustainability and scale. Our diagnostic provides an objective view, considering aspects such as size and turnover to explore whether it is ready to take this next step.
How well is your board really performing? While the business might be doing well, it could do much better with a high-performing board that is aware of all influences on success. We consider aspects such as how often the strategy is reviewed, whether the business plan is up to date and what the status on liability insurance is.
Running an effective board meeting is about more than just what happens around the boardroom table. It also requires ensuring that the agenda is properly constructed, that board papers talk to the agenda, are ready and circulated timeously, and that everyone thoroughly reviews the necessary documents ahead of time. Managing all of this is no mean feat, and we are here to assist with your board performance.
Our minuting process supports good governance by ensuring timeous turnaround and clear actions.
Agendas are drawn up to allow discussion of every important aspect for optimal decision-making and strict time-keeping.
We ensure that the board’s focus remains on the topic at hand and that all required aspects of governance are covered.

Effective boards make good decisions based on an effective board advisory foundation and strategy that supports the company’s vision. Their board members work together effectively to monitor, control and refine how the business functions and delivers. They always act with care, skill and diligence and with the best interests of the business in mind. If this is not the case, your board and business could be in trouble.
