Good Governance at a time of Strategic Challenge

By Saxton Bampfylde

Saxton Bampfylde has built a trusted reputation over 30 years for finding and nurturing leadership talent right across the public, private and not-for-profit sectors in the UK and internationally.

Saxton Bampfylde are delighted to sponsor Governance Now 2020. As an executive search and leadership advisory firm that has worked with some the most important organisations in public life for over 34 years, we have seen first-hand the powerful impact that good governance can have.

We believe this conference is more important than ever as boards of trustees and culture sector professionals engage with a period of serious strategic challenge. Some of the issues raised in this conference are those we consider on a daily basis and we look forward to discussing with fellow delegates throughout November.

The last few months have seen boards of trustees of cultural organisations under a period of incredible pressure as they grapple with the impact of the pandemic. This has had an impact on strategic planning of course but has also taken a toll on the people who lead and govern these organisations. This feels like a good moment therefore to step aside from the day-to-day for a period each week and consider how we can all be part of positive culture change.
