We deliver externally facilitated Board Evaluations, as well as running a thriving network of briefings and meetings for Company Secretaries.
Our small but highly experienced team has been working with Chairs, Company Secretaries and Boards since 2003.
‘In 2016 EquityCommunications Ltd carried out an interview based assessment for our Board. This was the second time their team had undertaken this for Compass, the first being in 2013. I feel they were able to generate a really valuable report for us, partly because they built upon the platform they had established three years earlier, despite there having been several Board changes in the intervening years.
‘Their style is relaxed and open. The conversational approach helps to make the process more fruitful, while the goal of gleaning accurate and valuable information for us to use, is very clear. Our Board should be encouraged by the outcomes, and while the report was highly positive, there are still areas that have been highlighted by EquityCommunications for us to consider. The process was efficiently and smoothly handled in line with our timetable and requirements.’ Mark White, Group General Counsel and Company Secretary, Compass Group PLC
Our service is exceptional, personally delivered – and has only one focus: your Board.
We know that an externally facilitated Board evaluation can and should deliver really valuable outcomes for Boards and for each Board member. But this is dependent on several factors, not least choosing the right facilitating team for your company.
And then, contact us to discuss your evaluation or set up a meeting with us. We hope to work with you soon.
‘As a FTSE Small Cap company we are not required to undertake externally facilitated reviews of our Board’s effectiveness. However, we decided that we wanted to adopt “best practice” and so we asked EquityCommunications Ltd to assist us with an assessment which was based on Board interviews.
‘The process has yielded some really valuable feedback. We had undertaken some fairly recent Board changes and it was a good opportunity to monitor how these changes had impacted on the Board. It was very encouraging to receive positive reactions to the way we have settled down as a team. But it has also helped us to focus on some changes – in some cases, small but important changes – that we can adopt as we continue to evolve and improve.
‘The process was discreet and relaxed. The report was delivered on time and the team and EquityCommunications handled it all efficiently with minimal impact on Board members or executive time.’ Stuart Marriner, Company Secretary & General Counsel, Connect Group plc
