When it comes to charity governance, her work is second to none
Jillian’s breadth of knowledge, combined with her deep attention to detail, turned a standard governance review into a rich opportunity for further reflection and development. When it comes to charity governance, her work is second to none.
We have accepted and are implementing all of the recommendations
As Chair of Gaisce I approved the appointment of Jillian to complete a comprehensive Governance review. We have always strived to establish best practice and this was an opportunity to test that and to see where we could improve.
Jillian completed a most comprehensive review engaging with the myriad of stakeholders including Council members. She was able to present back a report that was practical, informative, impactful and done in a way that no one felt “put upon”. We have accepted and are implementing all of the recommendations. I believe this something that all responsible organisations should do on a regular basis to ensure that best practice is applied.
Advice was practical, knowledgeable and supportive
Thank you for the direct information, guidance and advice you gave to us as it was practical, knowledgeable and supportive to me in my role. Charities governance is a special field that requires someone with practical skills both as an expert and Board member, this is critical for our sector. We have benefitted from your expertise, especially as you understand the challenges and culture of our work.
