Public Sector, Not-for-Profit & Education
This practice works in a sector subject to many aspects of public scrutiny where leadership and probity need to be above reproach. The lessons to be learned from business are being recognised today with the non-executives involved with government departments led and epitomised by Sir Ian Cheshire, former CEO of Kingfisher. The practice has involvement in central government, public administration, local government, professional bodies and academia as well as charities and foundations.
A particularly interesting area is that of healthcare charities, international & non-governmental organisations and the increasing touch points with government departments such as the Foreign & Commonwealth Office and the Department for International Development.
