Build your company's board

The board of directors has an essential role in company governance and setting the strategic direction of the business. The right board of directors brings your company specialist knowledge and expertise in key business areas, such as management, finance or technology.

By analysing your own strengths and weaknesses, you can appoint a board of directors that helps to fill gaps in your own business skills and experience. As with any key appointment, you should think carefully about how you hire, retain and make the best use of your directors.
