The Effective Board: Getting the most out of your Strategy Away Day

A clever response to concerns that boards weren’t spending enough time on strategy has been the annual “Away Day”.  Most boards now have them and most find them useful.  But we often pick up during our board reviews a sense of disappointment and lost opportunity, with a feeling that “it was good but could have been better”.  And it’s fair to say that (perhaps unsurprisingly) executives are usually less convinced of the benefits than the non-execs.  So what makes them work well?  And how can disappointment be avoided?


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”.
