Non-Executive Director

“I’d characterise Malcolm’s contribution in two ways, first, he makes a huge contribution in helping us be more strategic, both supporting the thinking and playing his part in holding us to account once we have set the strategy, (when it is all too easy for us to be distracted in the muck and bullets of the day to day role). Second, Malcolm ensures we recognise the breadth of the Board role, beyond the sum of our functions, by leading overall Board effectiveness and development”
Carole Harvey, Group Finance Director, Lifecrown Investments Ltd

Malcolm has attended hundreds of Board meetings in various client’s businesses and gained insights into effective and less effective Board meetings. Board work has included:

  • Re-focusing the balance between strategy and operational management
  • Strategy analysis, feedback and planning
  • Developing whole business balanced key performance indicators
  • Board effectiveness – evaluation and feedback
  • Family owned business succession
  • Director development

Malcolm influences and affects change by engaging with Board colleagues to gain their respect and trust.  ‘I see the NED role as a critical friend, a balance between delivering both challenge and support’.
