ValueAlpha is a specialist advisory firm which works with boards, directors and company secretaries to embed high-quality governance and improve organisational outcomes.  Time and resource devoted to governance activity represents a sound investment – it helps an organisation improve its effectiveness, measured by the quality of its decision-making, and improves the prospects for creating value.  An unwillingness to take governance seriously is one of the reasons why organisations fail.

ValueAlpha advises in the following areas

Board evaluation – from formal board effectiveness reviews to board facilitation on a range of governance and strategy-related challenges
Governance audit – including restructuring of boards and ExCos, reviewing governance structures
Training and Development – bespoke in-house workshops, focused on board and director effectiveness
Training courses – workshops and seminars on good practice corporate governance; directors’ duties; the role of the company director; the role of the company secretary; strategy and risk
Leadership Development – for company secretaries and governance professionals operating in the boardroom, who wish to develop the leadership skills needed to step into the top role
Presentation skills – for executives making presentations, talking to the media, and representing their organisation at a senior level

Building Better Boards – In Crisis And In Steady State

The world is in lockdown. Face-to-face business interactions, from board meetings to town hall conversations, have disappeared overnight. In-person networking opportunities will not be possible for another year
We have a different kind of time on our hands
But we still need to stay in touch
We need to find new ways of building and maintaining our networks, and continuing our professional growth – as governance professionals, and members of the board community, turning the enormous challenges we are facing to positive effect
In particular, we need to be talking to each other, to discuss the challenges we are facing now, and the challenges – and opportunities – we will face as the new, post-pandemic, world emerges
In sum, we need to continue to grow as governance professionals
My members-only Facebook group will allow us to discuss developments in the world of governance, and exchanges ideas and reflect on the way the world is changing through the lens of this key business discipline
