Chairs & Non-Executive Directors

As a Chair or Non-Executive Director (NED) of an organisation, it can be difficult to stay abreast of your its changing operations and governance requirements. However, it is your responsibility to guide and foster effective decision making within the Board while continuing to protect its reputation both in and outside the boardroom. 

Additionally, you have significant oversight over management’s execution of strategy as well as their risk appetite as agreed by the Board itself. You are also expected to ensure management follows through on strategic commitments and to keep an eye on risk levels as determined by the Board. It’s easy for CEO/CFO transition plans or the governance framework, which keeps the company sustainable and reputations protected, to be overlooked.


We provide a full suite of governance advisory, consultancy and training services that enhance performance and safeguard the organisation’s and individual director’s reputations.
