Board Practices

The role of the board is to shepherd success and watch out for risk

Successful boards have planned their boards around the skills that each member brings ensuring that there is expertise around the table to manage every situation and to support the Chair of the Board.

Strong boards recognize that hiring the right people can mean expanding your search beyond their own network and friends especially if they value diversity and know what is best for their business.

Russam’s board practice has a unique perspective; gained from experience in the NFP and Commercial sectors, board evaluation services and from time spent coaching experienced executives on how to find their way to the Boardroom with Cranfield University. After all, even the best athletes have coaches, so it makes sense for Directors to have a coach too. In addition, we support Winmark NED programme as technical sponsor and deliver powerful and informative breakfast and lunch roundtables.
