Board Development Services (For-Profit or Nonprofit)

There's more attention now to the quality of corporate governance than ever before. This is not only because of recent ethical and legal issues in some very prominent corporations, but also because corporations are realizing that the leverage point for long-lasting success, whether for-profit or nonprofit, is the health of its Board of Directors. Unfortunately, there are few consultants who have strong expertise in Boards and governance. We do.
