Board Connexions offers a highly professional and confidential service to help Boards, Senior Executives and Directors facing challenges with governance, leadership and strategy. Board Connexions is different because it is evidence based, provides value for money and uses the expertise of a highly qualified practising Director with a wealth of experience.
We work with Senior Executives, Directors and Board Members on their governance journey by equipping them with the frameworks to ensure their relationships, systems and processes are leading edge. Governance, leadership and strategy are all elements of this journey.
The cornerstone of any organisation is its people and their relationships. Boards are no different and need to be made up of the right people, with the right technical skills and strategic leadership qualities to ensure optimal alignment with the organisation’s strategic direction.
Strategy is about determining the right direction for an organisation and how to lead the organisation in that direction. The correct strategy becomes the dynamic road map for success. Board Connexions uses collaborative stakeholder models to help organisations determine their strategic direction
I just wanted to let you know how much I enjoyed the workshop this afternoon. You have a great delivery technique and you were able to keep everyone engaged throughout the whole session. It certainly helped clarify a lot of things for me and I am hoping to utilise what I learned to secure some lasting opportunities at board level. After today I think I will be able to think and act more strategically. Thank you for your time and effort, I very much appreciate it. I hope our paths cross again soon.
