Selecting a board is a critical step when growing the business and often a vital component when achieving your strategic objectives.
We have placed board members for many profiles of organisation. The challenge is most acute at the start-up level as the composition and authority of the board sets the tone for the whole organisation and could be critical to achieving success.
It is important to establish a credible board featuring people with significant track records. Not only does it provide informed governance but it helps a new company gain positive PR and gives the regulator the confidence that you will deliver on your strategic objectives.
A new board normally features more than one individual taking their first non-executive roles. The transition to a non-exec position can be challenging for high-achieving leaders so, as well as identifying candidates, we help to prepare them by explaining the expectations and limitations of the role.
By working together, we can plan a timetable and identify key-board roles before identifying and approaching candidates.
