Building Great Boards®
Re-Imagining Board Recruitment
We are recruiting experts; the only firm in Canada uniquely and exclusively dedicated to the work of Boards.
We help your organization to:
Optimize Board CompositionWhile there are some core competencies and personal attributes that are consistent requirements for all board members to have, the ideal board composition and relevant mix of experience, knowledge, skills, backgrounds and personal attributes, will vary from company to company.
Our experts will help your board establish ‘The right’ composition by complementing your organization’s strategy and current business environment with the breadth of knowledge, skills and characteristics, in order to tackle the critical issues of today’s business world while also considering the challenges and demands of the future.
Recruit New Board Directors Through a Merit-Based ProcessProcess weaknesses and outdated recruiting practices can impede a merit-based selection regime, which often results in underwhelming hiring decisions.
When you work with us, you’ll not only gain access to a deep talent pool that goes beyond the conventional networks of ‘obvious’ prospects, you’ll benefit from the re-vitalized recruiting practices and new protocols designed specifically for the role of a board. Our modern and inclusive method ensures a robust, objective and merit-based selection process, which will withstand scrutiny from your most fervent stakeholders.
Conduct Robust Measurements of a Candidate’s CapabilityThe role of a board director is not suited to everyone, and ensuring your board selects the most appropriate directors is a significant undertaking. While boards understand the skills and attributes that make for an effective director; they are often challenged to rigorously and objectively assess these during the selection process.
Our board-specific protocols are designed to evaluate the full capability of potential directors; We help your committee to gain a genuine understanding of each candidate’s core competencies and personal characteristics, and our method keeps you focused on the merit of each candidate and the “True” capability they bring to your board.
