The Board’s beginning
Age, time and experience create an incomparable asset of skills. The Board is helping organizations to meet challenges where time at the coalface makes a real difference. You are reading about a team of consultants with big miles on the clock. We did that “combined years of experience” thing and the total was …well... very high.
But the combined cerebral power is impressive. Read on to find out more about each of us. There are also video clips. If you wish to meet, we can tell you what we can do for your organization. All in confidence.
We have all worked together in various combinations in the past. And the longer we’ve known each other the more we’ve realised what we can offer as a group.
The decision to create a group evolved over several months when we started to explore the old ‘sum of the individual parts,” theory. We concluded that some organisations would see value in our combined energy and creative ideas.
Members of The Board don’t reminisce too much – we think about the future. We think about the past just to extract experience for today’s challenges.
We understand the trends of change taking place in human societies and observe the changes like anybody else; with fascination, excitement, doubt and very often the big question; “Will this trend improve or inhibit improvement of societies? The answers are seldom very simple.
We have been at the heart of what drove the social, economic, business and communications revolutions of the past four decades.
Like surfers, having caught and capitalised on these waves when they were first curling, we continue to ride the leading edge today.
Many traditional jobs are disappearing and the skills required for the new jobs are quite different to even a decade passed.
Internationally, it is notable how many people in their sixth, seven and eight decades, are the leading commentators on our changing World.
Jeremy Rifkin, Bill Gates, Jordan Peterson and many more.
There is an important mindset in people of The Board. Perhaps we were wired from birth to think more about the present and future, who knows? But the communications industries, whether advertising, marketing or public affairs, tend to keep practitioners in the time zone of the near future – speculating on questions of promise, reward, or even avoidance of problems. All to do with a well conditioned frontal cortex.
That’s what we bring to all of our clients, along with our unmentionable combined years of experience.
The collective wisdom held within the people, is more than the sum of its parts.
And while so much has changed in the disciplines of, marketing, international trade, capital raising, HR and more, one thing hasn’t changed very much at all; those human values held by stakeholder groups. They are as responsive as ever, to well crafted ideas and campaigns.
