Governance Review Focus Areas

Whether it is creating a new governance framework or reviewing an existing one. We examine four different aspects of your governance.

The Organisation

We examine your vision, values, strategy, legal and regulatory framework, and hierarchy to ensure that your practices align with your overall objectives and are compliant.

Leadership & Effectiveness

We assess your board and committee structures and support functions, board and committee development, and the role of stakeholders to help you identify areas for improvement.

Accountability, Openness, Transparency

We assess your stakeholder relations, Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR), and AGM process to ensure that you are transparent and accountable to your stakeholders.

Monitoring & Internal Controls

We examine your risk management policies and procedures and internal control environment to ensure you are compliant with relevant regulations and managing risks effectively.

Governance Framework Reviews

We will work with your team and gather insights through documents, interviews, surveys and observation. We will work with your team each step of the way and ensure the results are actionable.
