Your Board Should Be a Driver of Your Organisation’s Performance

At Board Excellence with offices in the UK and Ireland, we offer a range of services designed to create high performance boards that become a huge driver of an organisation’s performance.

Sound governance is crucial to the sustained success of all organisations and central to sound governance is a high-performing board of directors. While the factors that impact on an organisation’s performance are complex and diverse, a highly effective board of directors has a direct and significant influence on the success of the organisation beyond its statutory requirements and is a powerful source of added value for shareholders and stakeholders.

When we engage with board clients, our goal is to empower them to achieve step-changes in their effectiveness, performance and in the value they create for their organisations, so that average boards become effective over time and effective boards become high-performing. We also work closely with high-performing boards to support them in constantly improving their performance.

While compliance with various governance codes and principles can help to provide safeguards for boards, we don’t believe that compliance alone will facilitate delivery and protection of shareholder or stakeholder value. We do believe, however, that the true characteristics of a high-performing board are found in the inter-play between people dynamics, behaviours and focus, and these are the factors which, when converging, will drive your board to deliver real value for all shareholders and stakeholders.

Read on to see how we can empower your board to achieve step-changes in their performance and the value they add to your organisation.

What our Clients say

“Our decision to choose Board Excellence to run our External Evaluation turns out to have been an excellent one ! Kieran Moynihan’s report was thorough, balanced, comprehensive and excellent value. More importantly it was insightful. It pulled no punches and provided candid feedback that was hard hitting but accurate. At the same time it drew out an array of very positive points too. We all greatly appreciated the directness of Kieran’s comments, are thoroughly pleased we have done the exercise and are relishing our next steps. Thanks Board Excellence – an excellent job !”

“Kieran Moynihan has provided mentoring services to me over the last 12 months in support of my role as chairman of the board of a private equity backed business. Drawing on a wealth of his own board room experience and a state-of-the-art knowledge of best practices I find his down to earth observations invaluable in helping me to be effective in my chairman role. His advice on tactical aspects of managing and leading a board has invariably been spot on while his overall focus is always on the prize of helping me develop a high performing board that adds real value to the organisation. I warmly recommend him.”
