Board Meeting Review Portal
Welcome to our Board Meeting Review Portal
This review process works as a questionnaire, taking you through each of the carefully chosen questions about your recent Board meeting. Its purpose is to support continual improvement of Board meetings and boardroom leadership. The steps to use it are:
- Administration process – As a Board, agree which trusted colleague will receive everyone’s completed questionnaires – this may be your Company Secretary, Chair, CEO, external adviser (eg) Leading Governance Ltd! That person should be discreet (as responses will not be anonymous), assertive enough to follow-up non-responders, and capable of compiling an anonymised report for the Board based on all the responses they receive.
- Questionnaire – complete the questionnaire, which should only take around 10-15 minutes, and it will be automatically sent by email to the person appointed by the Board to administer. It’s important that everyone offers specific positive feedback, and constructive suggestions for further improvement. Care should be taken not to criticise any individual.
- Report – the agreed administrator compiles an anonymised report for the Board to consider at its next meeting.
As mentioned in point 1, Leading Governance Ltd. specialises in Governance Reviews and is on hand to assist with your review. All reviews can be done virtually. Get in touch below for a free consultation and quote.

Expertise in Governance: Governance specialists have in-depth knowledge and expertise in corporate governance principles and best practices. They understand the roles, responsibilities, and dynamics of board members, as well as the overall governance framework. This expertise enables them to assess your board’s performance effectively and provide valuable insights.
Objectivity and Independence: An external governance specialist brings objectivity and independence to the review process. They are not directly involved in the board’s operations or influenced by internal biases. Their impartial perspective helps to identify strengths, weaknesses, and areas for improvement within the board’s functioning.
Comprehensive Evaluation: A 360° review conducted by a governance specialist ensures a thorough evaluation of the board’s performance. They can assess various aspects, including board composition, effectiveness of committees, decision-making processes, strategic planning, risk management, board dynamics, and adherence to regulatory requirements.
Benchmarking and Best Practices: Governance specialists possess knowledge of industry-specific governance standards and benchmarks. They can compare the board’s practices with recognized best practices and industry norms. This benchmarking allows boards to identify gaps, learn from other organizations, and implement improvements to enhance their governance performance.
Confidentiality and Trust: A governance specialist maintains confidentiality throughout the review process. Board members can openly share their perspectives, concerns, and challenges without fear of reprisal. This confidentiality fosters trust and encourages board members to provide honest feedback, facilitating a more accurate assessment.
Recommendations for Improvement: Based on their assessment, a governance specialist can provide actionable recommendations for enhancing board effectiveness. These recommendations may include suggestions for board composition, committee structure, board processes, training and development opportunities for board members, and governance policies and procedures. These insights help the board to make informed decisions and drive positive change.
External Perception and Reputation: An effective board is crucial for maintaining a positive external perception and reputation of an organization. By engaging a governance specialist, the board demonstrates its commitment to good governance practices, transparency, and accountability. This external validation enhances stakeholder confidence, investor trust, and overall reputation.
