If you’re working with Governing bodies we recognise that it isn’t as simple as just cracking on with a spot of marketing.  Understanding the ways in which you need to report, interpret and respond can be tricky… and that’s before we get started on jumping through the Governance hoops and tackling Governor recruitment itself.  That’s where we come in.  As experts in working with Governing bodies we can help you to make the best of this working relationship so that your marketing and business development flourishes.

To support this we have developed two dedicated products.  You can click on the pink titles to download our brochures.

  1. Governor recruitment – In today’s further education sector the need to build a strategically appropriate governing body is key to strategic success.  Our Governor Recruitment and Induction programme covers three stages: agreeing what you’re looking for; communication for recruitment and; selection, induction and mentoring.

  2. Marketing and business development audit – A robust, professional audit of your whole marketing and business development function reviewing everything from tactical activity (benchmarked against competitors) through to how well this is linked to overall strategy, team structure and effectiveness, legal and professional compliance, governance (where applicable) and recommendations to reduce risk in the future.  This is presented to Governors as a traffic light risk register and stands alongside other internal audits they may commission.
