Why Competent Boards?

For almost 30 years I have had the opportunity to advise global business leaders on how to turn sustainability into strong financial results.

Leaders are asking me for cutting-edge knowledge – and what could be better than offering that in a convenient and collaborative way.

Competent Boards is a place for future and current directors and business leaders who want to learn from each other, grow their competencies, and improve their organization’s resiliency. Read Mrs. Bank Jorgensen’s bio here.

“Incredible initiative. Competent Boards will share knowledge, experience and insight to help train board members on how to capitalise on opportunities the SDGs present.”

– Paul Polman, CEO, Unilever, Chair, International Chamber of Commerce & 
The B-Team & Vice-Chair, United Nations Global Compact

“I think the focus that you have brought to the whole development of governance at the board level is timely. It’s not that we’re lagging, but we need to have people like yourself who are challenging some of the conventions of governance and forcing us to think beyond these conventions.”

– Peter Dey, Chairman, Paradigm Capital Inc and the “godfather of Canadian governance”

“…business leaders realize that how they do business can be good for business and society if you do it in the right way. That is, in my mind, a major opportunity for business and business leaders to play a different role in society.”
