Board Evaluation in Ireland
Interview-Based External Board Evaluations
Our interview-based board evaluations recognise your governance, regulatory and business challenges. This results in a report with suggestions tailored to your board in its circumstances.
Our interviews cover a wide range of topics including composition, dynamics, board information and meeting arrangements.
But, we have a strong focus on how your Board looks at strategy, risk management, controls, performance and emerging trends. We also typically review board papers and observe board and committee meetings to see how they work in action.
Our reviews comply with the UK Corporate Governance Code, which is recognised by Euronext Dublin. We have also worked with companies regulated by the CBI and ECB, and Irish government bodies.
Questionnaire-Based External Board Evaluations
You can use a questionnaire-based approach to comply with the UK Corporate Governance Code.
Our approach helps you get value from the process. Our detailed questions draw on our 17 years of experience reviewing boards in the UK, Ireland and beyond. And, you’ll receive a narrative report and feedback to the Board, drawing out suggestions based on what works well elsewhere.
For a more thorough review, you can also include board observation and a review of the board papers as part of the process.
Board Evaluation Software
You can use our board evaluation questionnaires for your internal board reviews. It’s easy to use, and respondents can fill it in online.
Our questionnaires are designed to work for all boards, with all different governance and ownership structures. The questions are detailed, and structured to help you identify areas for improvement and root causes. But, you can tailor the questions as you like.
You can use our automated reporting to easily draw out the emerging themes. You can identify any divergence of opinions, such as between NEDs and Executives. Simply export the charts to Word to build your board paper.
