The Effective Board: Governance reporting – getting the message over

For many companies it’s that time of year. The annual report drafting has come around again all too quickly. With it comes the challenge of saying something different – or at least making it look different. This can be particularly difficult with the governance section which, let’s face it, is probably destined to be pretty dry whatever you do. But it’s always worth looking for opportunities to set out your governance stall in a better way. Some changes over the past year or so mean that you (and the audit committee in particular) need to keep on top of what’s included. And the Strategic Report initiative makes this a good time to take a fresh look. Here are just a few pointers on some aspects to consider and mistakes to avoid.


We’ve worked with more than 160 clients. They are mainly FTSE 350 comanies – including 20 from the FTSE 100.

Helping you get it right

For us, good governance is about good performance.

Yes, compliance matters.  But our work is about helping you make sure your organisation…is led effectively by a board that adds value…is kept under control through risk management and assurance frameworks that meet your needs…and is “doing the right thing”.
