Board Advisory Services

The strength and effectiveness of a board significantly impacts the success of an organization. KBRS offers a variety of support services to help attract diverse board members, train and develop both board members and leaders, and advise on matters of governance and strategic planning.  

Strategic Governance Support 

Strategic council: Our experienced consultants provide governance advisory support to CEOs, chairs, boards, and committees on key topics, from board renewal to CEO evaluation. 

Board succession planning: We help you develop a plan to assess future board leadership requirements, then design a strategy to meet those needs, considering priorities, timing, and sequencing. We also assist with the development of tools such as role descriptions or mentoring approaches.

We leverage our networks to attract diverse candidate pools. Our team can provide candidate care to interested individuals and support screening, recommendations, and preparation for interviews.
