Navigating the Journey with your Unique Goals in Mind

We also provide consultancy and capacity building support on request, including a Board Effectiveness Review, which comprises a questionnaire and board workshop.  This helps the board to understand how effective they are, individually and collectively, in delivering on governance responsibilities. It also provides assurance to stakeholders that the organisation is well led and controlled. The Review is customisable to the needs of your board with a range of approaches available. Areas that may be included in the review are:

  • Effectiveness of the Board (collective and individual)
  • Strategic planning
  • Financial oversight
  • Individual Board roles
  • Adherence to the Board code of conduct
  • Sub-committees

The Neurological Alliance of Ireland would like to warmly acknowledge Carmichael Training & Consultancy for their advice and support in enabling our organisation to revise its constitution and develop a Governance Handbook. The direction and guidance provided by Carmichael were invaluable and, with their support, we are able to obtain pro-bono legal support for the work, a vital consideration for our small organisation.
