Ineffective board meeting


Blizzards and blindspots

The decisions we take are only as good as the information we base them on. But too often board packs are heavy on data and light on insight, long on the short-term and short on the long-term.

“There are three questions every board should ask. Do I really know what is going on? Are we focusing on the right things? And are we asking the right questions?”

~ Michael O’Higgins, Chair

Board reports that get to the heart of the matter

Where boards want to be

Board packs that are half the size and twice the impact

Board Intelligence starts with the questions that matter to the board and embeds them into a new reporting mindset through training, templates and a briefing tool.

“The effect on the process of writing, reviewing and refining reports has been life-changing”

~ Graham Donoghue, CEO, Sykes Cottages

Now you can stop second guessing your board

To write a board paper you need to know what mark you're trying to hit. The Board Intelligence briefing tool will give the report writer more than just the title of the paper they've been asked to write, going deeper into helping them to understand what matters to the board and steering them to a best practice template.

Board Intelligence provides a library of board paper templates that make it quick and easy for your team to prepare insight-rich reports for your board, from key decision papers to data rich performance updates.
