who are Beyond governance?
Erika Eliasson-Norris, CEO of Beyond Governance, has always worked in the ‘eye of the storm’. Her career included navigating controversial board decisions, shareholder rebellions, a share price collapse to the brink of insolvency, high profile anti-management stakeholder protests, survival focused business division disposals, corporate manslaughter investigations, forced CEO and Chair removals, c-suite fraud investigations, FCA dawn raids, unexpected radio appearances, liquidation evading emergency finance and more…
These challenging and extensive experiences afforded her the top governance and legal position in a London based FTSE 250 organisation at the age of 32 – the youngest person in the industry to take on this c-suite level role.
Following frustrations over the lack of tailored, realistic, practical advice for c-suite Governance Professionals, Erika left her corporate career in 2019 and founded Beyond Governance.
“ We weren’t going to be another ‘off the shelf’ solutions provider, I needed to hire my in-house peers not career consultants ”
– Erika Eliasson-Norris, CEO.
…that strong organisations are efficient, ethical and have robust decision making.
We hold ourselves accountable to these standards through our B-Corp certification and work with businesses to evolve their cultures and develop bespoke governance frameworks which fortify their organisation ensuring stakeholder confidence, organisational stability and unprecedented growth.
Our solutions are tailored to each client based on our expert knowledge.
Our consultants are amongst the best in-house Governance Professionals in the industry.
They have worked and thrived on the front line in challenging situations where integrity, personal impact, self-awareness, and a clear understanding of the impact of board dynamics and organisational culture were vital.
We work remotely, which enables us to hire the best consultants regardless of location and attend client meetings both virtually and in person as required. We continue to be pioneering in our approach to governance and we will continue to push the boundaries to pragmatically support our clients, provide quality thought leadership and encourage all organisations to consider their stakeholders in decision-making, as we do ourselves.
