Practical & Experienced Advice

Board Appointments & Reviews

I help create new boards and recruit directors for existing boards. Privately owned businesses are my passion and what I specialise in.

I help to structure your board, define role descriptions, advertise positions, screen applicants, lead the interview panel and formalise appointment documentation.

During this process I answer all your questions: full board or advisory board, how much should we pay, who should be our chair, who is the best person for our organisation and what should we expect from our directors.

I also undertake reviews of existing privately owned business boards.

My approach is very practical and applied: observing at a board meeting, interviewing directors and the CEO, reviewing board papers/documentation and facilitating an online evaluation.

To discuss your board, please contact Simon on 021 321 901 or via email.
