Board Governance Training


Board Governance Training

Effective board governance, properly composed and structured, can provide valuable guidance to an organization to maximize success.

Our professional team will partner with you to clarify your board’s purpose. We will work with you to develop strategies for  engagement and board interaction, risk mitigation and financial oversight. We help you align your governance model to meet your organization’s strategic goals. We facilitate discussions with your board to help clarify their roles and establish priorities.


  • What is the role of the Board vs Management?
  • What should a director know before signing on?
  • How do you assess the performance of the Board and Management?
