Need to improve
governance in your role?

Is this keeping you awake at night?

Are you a business owner or leader who puts your heart and soul into your work all day, every day, and can’t switch off at night?

If you’re one of those in-the-trenches, wear-all-hats, can’t-let-go types of leaders, your 9-to-5 workday is usually filled with solving problems, managing processes, people and operations. Then you lie awake at night worrying about what you missed that day or what needs to be fixed tomorrow.

Whether you’re a Chair, Board Member, CEO, executive, business owner or senior leader, sometimes just keeping ‘business as usual’ running smoothly is such a challenge that it can seem impossible to find the time and headspace to keep focus on your vision for the business.

But without that time to focus on what you’re doing now, as well as where you’re going, it’s common for business leaders like you to find that your corporate governance policies, processes and frameworks have gradually fallen by the wayside. Outdated, undocumented operations, ill-defined governing lines (policies and procedures all over the place, managers and team members with unclear accountabilities) have left you and the business vulnerable or unprepared for market or personnel changes, unforeseen risks or corporate audits.

What our clients say

Slide 1

Shenal Basnayake

Founder - Indigenous Solutions Australia

Having worked with Lisa, I can truly say that she is one dynamic, intelligent, professional and thoughtful individual. Above all she is passionate about making a difference and that’s what really makes her stand out. Her down to earth approach and the ability to have frank and fearless conversations is great, particularly when in difficult situations – great traits for a governance professional. Her knowledge of governance and ability to present in layman terms was well appreciated. She has helped me out personally during times of uncertainty and I am very grateful for the support she has given me.

Chair – Finance, Risk & Audit committee, LLS

I have known Lisa since October 2016 at a time when LLS needed to improve its governance framework. Its risk oversight, audit and assurance functions were not adequate. An independent audit recommended 57 actions. Lisa and her team addressed these issues by introducing fundamental policies, developing frameworks and processes, ensuring they were stakeholder tested. Lisa delivered requirements in a way that brought the organisation’s stakeholders on the journey, embedding requirements into the culture and fundamentally changing the lens and priority of governance activities across the business. I have no hesitation in recommending Lisa should another organisation have similar issues.

Founder & Executive Director, Caruso’s Natural Health

As the founder and owner of a business that is scaling up its operations to deliver the next level of great products to our customers, I have found that we need to rely more heavily on effective governance policy and process for our internal business operations. I have found that Lisa provides exactly what we need. She provides advice, coaching and recommends and delivers a bespoke level of governance service that is right sized and effective in delivering the outcomes we desire. I have no hesitation in recommending The GovernanceCollective for any small to medium size business who are moving to the next level.
