Governance

“Governance is recognising the responsibility that, as a board member, you have to protect the long-range future of your organisation and see to it that it fulfills its obligations to its constituencies, however defined”.”

Ken Dayton in Governance is Governance

Governance refers to how an organisation is run, directed, and controlled. Good governance means an organisation will design and put in place policies and procedures that will make sure the organisation runs effectively.

Jillian’s governance expertise emanates from over twenty-five years serving and chairing Boards along with her recognised accreditation as a Chartered Director (IoD UK), certified in international corporate governance from INSEAD (Europe’s highest-ranked business school), and an Institute of Directors Certificate in Company Direction with distinctions in governance, strategy and leadership.

Jillian works with organisations to provide training and workshops for their Boards on a wide range of governance topics, including Board roles and responsibilities, company law, charity law, and balancing the roles and responsibilities of the Board and management. Jillian can provide bespoke training to Boards based on their current needs and level of understanding.

In addition, Jillian provides a wide range of services to provide oversight, guidance, and expert advice on specific governance issues or to help an organisation review and update its governance procedures and policies to ensure it is in line with best practice.
