Board Development & Governance Services

At a time when every not-for-profit organisation must maximise its skills and expertise, a strong, confident board lends a huge advantage. Governance & boards Research about why organisations are successful repeatedly tells us that good quality leadership at board level is essential.  This applies whether you are large or small; volunteer-led or with many paid staff.

So all aspects of a board need to be carefully considered; the size of the group, the range of skills, the professional knowledge, and the balance of personalities are just a few.  The board may need different emphasises at different stages of an organisation’s growth.

No two boards are exactly the same, so we create a bespoke development package for each organisation, according to its circumstances.  READ Consultancy offers:

  • Whole board training on legal roles and responsibilities
  • Governance audits to establish an organisation’s legal compliance
