How Effective Board Reporting Can Help Directors Sleep at Night

Rachel Colombi FGIA GAICD

Founder, The Governance Guide

The Governance Guide is a governance, policy, and compliance consultancy with a mission to enhance the effectiveness of an organisation's governance practices, in as simple a manner as possible. Its founder, Rachel Colombi is a Fellow of the Governance Institute of Australia and a Graduate of the Australian Institute of Company Directors.

Rachel's experience leading governance, policy and compliance functions in the higher education and not-for-profit sectors coupled with experience delivering both small and large-scale strategic improvements brings a unique perspective to The Governance Guide's offering.

The role of an NFP director continues to become more complex in an increasingly challenging environment. The recent AICD Not for Profit Study found 44% of directors who responded to the survey are spending more time on their director role compared to last year.

This workshop will explore the fundamentals of effective board reporting and how, when done well, it can lighten the load on directors and contributes significantly to overall board effectiveness.

Rachel will delve into the core principles of board reporting, focusing on the critical elements of clarity, conciseness, consistency, and completeness.

  • Gain insight: with an overview of the role effective board reporting plays in driving informed decision-making and shaping strategic planning. A case study will demonstrate what can go wrong when board reporting is ineffective.
  • Deep dive: through dynamic discussions and real-world examples, to understand how to achieve clarity, conciseness, consistency, and completeness
  • Hands-On learning: apply the strategies directly to a sample board report.

Join Rachel for practical and implementable strategies that will ensure your board reporting is contributing to informed decision-making and enhancing your board effectiveness.
