A company’s board of directors plays a fundamental role in combining oversight of the company’s operations, finances and risk management while supporting the executive team in delivering superior performance.
A highly effective board team makes a significant contribution to the success of the organisation beyond its statutory requirements and is a powerful source of added value for board members, executives, shareholders and stakeholders.
Progressive high-performance board teams have at their core a genuine partnership between executive and non-executive board members, balancing effective oversight, high quality challenge and debate while adding significant strategic value.
The Partners at Board Excellence, as former CEOs, founders and executives of companies across a wide range of sectors ranging from start-ups to indigenous companies with several thousand employees, have a strong track record of supporting Small and Medium Enterprises in improving their board effectiveness and translating this into enriched company performance.
Board Excellence provide a range of practical and cost-effective supports to SMEs including:
- Board evaluation
- Board best practices workshop
- Non-executive director search service
- Support on improving the board information model and reporting
- Strategy workshop facilitation
- Board chair mentor support
- Board induction programme, succession planning and diversity programme
- Board dispute mediation
We have developed a series of board best practices specifically for the SME environment and take a very practical approach to working closely with the chair and board team to drive a step-change in their performance and the performance of the organisation.
