Cyclone and flood recovery support and initiatives

Cyclone Gabrielle continues to impact the Hawke’s Bay and the effects will be long-lasting.

Critical infrastructure repairs are a top priority, but the damage wrought by the cyclone is not just physical – the mental health and wellbeing of business owners, employees and the broader community cannot be understated.

A board of directors, or advisors, is crucial to the direction and governance of your company. A good board with a vested interest in your accomplishment provides valuable guidance and oversight to help your Chief Executive and leadership team succeed. Governance shapes the direction of the business, keeps people accountable, opens up new strategies and opportunities, and encourages working practices where the owner becomes freer to work ‘on’ the business rather than ‘in’ it. Governance is also linked to the growth and success of a company.

Join us as we take you through the information that you need to know to make the board of your business as successful as possible.

A fantastic overview of Governance with great real life examples and presented in a professional way. I am sure many of the insights will stay with me for the rest of my career.
