Strategy, risk and governance
Do you have a clearly articulated strategy for your organisation – one that everyone in your organisation understands and uses to guide their day-to-day decisions? What about your risk management processes – when was the last time your risk register was updated? And how robust is the governance framework you have in place?
These three areas are critical to the success of any organisation. But it can be challenging to concisely articulate your strategy, ensure that your risk management policies and procedures are comprehensive, and that your governance framework is robust and appropriate to your situation. Often, organisations – especially smaller charities and not-for-profits - don’t have that expertise in-house. Yet these things are fundamental to achieving sustainable change.
Our experienced network members can help ensure that you have the strategies, policies and processes in place that mean you can confidently focus on making a lasting impact on the issues you care about.
What a fantastic and much-need organisation who I can highly recommend to other CEOs! We’ve had great support from Julia at Concierge, and from great Specialists who not only know their stuff, but really care!

While some see this as the “boring bits”, our specialists have a deep understanding of NFP governance and know just how critical it is to success and sustainability. Collectively, our Network has decades of experience in developing organisational strategy and operating models, as well as robust risk management frameworks and designing governance structures that meet the needs of you and your organisation, as well as regulatory requirements.

It will also give confidence to funders and partners. Let our Network of specialists give you the support that you need to confidently face the challenges that making an impact demands.
