The festive season—known as Christmas in most commonwealth nations, Holiday Season in the US, and other names elsewhere—is a time to gather with family and friends to celebrate, reflect and, importantly, give thanks.
To friends, colleagues and clients around the world: Thank you for your support and encouragement in 2017. To have been invited into boardrooms in New Zealand, Australia, the UK and Europe to provide assistance; speak at conferences, summits and other forums; and, contribute to the development of new, more effective models of board practice and corporate governance has been a distinct honour. Thank you.
After a busy but fulfilling twelve months, I'm about to take some time out, to relax and recharge ahead of what is already shaping up to be an interesting year serving boards and directors internationally. If think you might require assistance in 2018, please get in touch. I am available, globally, from 4 January onwards.
Thoughts on corporate governance, strategy and the craft of board work; our place in the world; and, other things that catch my attention.
