Like many other professional services firms, we are trusted advisors who provide principled guidance that is built on relevant expertise, collaboration, trust, candor and mutual respect. But, how we are ‘different’– is the reason why you’ll want to work with us.
Lansdowne Board Intelligence is different by design and for all the right reasons. We do not subscribe to a one-size-fits-all approach, nor are we guided or constrained by the way it has “always been done.” We’re re-imagining the recruitment process and when you work with us, you’ll get, objective and out-of-the-box thinking from seasoned and passionate experts who provide:
Uniquely Specialization – Unlike any other search firm, we are uniquely and exclusively dedicated to the work of boards, and to accelerating the diversity of your leadership teams. We review how you recruit your people; we challenge your thinking; we enhance your practices; and, we change outcomes.
Insight and Innovation – The need for change, impartiality and a passion to “think outside the box” is what led us to re-engineer our own recruitment practices, and develop new protocols that are effective in ensuring that our clients engage in a rigorous and merit-based process to select the most relevant, competent and diverse people possible.
Commitment to Go the Extra Mile – We’re committed to going the extra mile and leave no stone unturned in sourcing competent, relevant and diverse candidates who will contribute the best long-term value. Our partners are hands-on throughout the entire process, ensuring your slate of candidates is appropriately assessed and vetted for the role at hand, and we won’t stop until our mandate is successful.
Breaking Barriers – We recognize that the vast majority of boards do not utilize search firms to find new directors, and instead rely on their own networks, which perpetuates homogeneity and impedes diversity. In an effort to change this status quo, we offer our services on an ‘unbundled’ basis, which enables your organization to engage us for ‘just what you need’ on a per diem basis.
Best-In-Class Board Selection Practices to Improve Diversity – Our commitment to diversity is real, long-standing and unparalleled. We commit to not only finding you the most qualified and relevant female leaders your board needs; but also, to re-vitalizing your board’s selection process to avoid the self-defeating practices that detract from your ability to actually “appoint” more women.
