Applied Governance Advice

Board Governance and Training

We help public purpose boards enhance their governance. No two organizations — or their boards — are the same. That’s why we approach your situation with a principles-based approach. We look at who you are, your history, mission, and mandate, the resources you have at your disposal, and anything else that makes your organization truly unique.

What does this service entail?

We provide a customized service of one or more of the following, depending upon your needs:

  • An independent governance assessment.
  • Strategy planning and expert facilitation.
  • Customized multi-stakeholder consultations and meetings.
  • Governance tools, including bylaws, policies, and committee terms of reference.
  • Board training and board member development.
  • Facilitation and moderated Board workshops and retreats.

Who should use this service?

  • Not-for-profits, Crown corporations, agencies, boards and commissions.
  • Boards and their organization’s leadership team.
  • Board secretariats who support internal governance structures and processes.

When should this service be used?

  • When Boards are undertaking strategic planning reviews or retreats.
  • When new leadership joins or current leadership is reviewing the mission and mandate of the organization.
  • When governance policies and practices need to be updated.
