    Good morning GPC members, 

    Our Corporate Board of Directors is looking to engage an external service provider to conduct a best practice review (external governance / audit review) of its governance system (i.e. guidelines, policies, etc.). Has your Board been through a similar exercise and if so, would you have any suggestions of external service providers? Thanks!

    We had a fantastic experience with Watson Advisors. They took the time to understand our organization and tailor their approach. They are focused solely on governance and have bench strength to assist with initiatives that may come out of your governance effectiveness review. I am happy to discuss in more details if you're interested.

    We had one done in 2016 and used IOG (Institute on Governance).  We were very satisfied and pleased with their analysis and recommendations.  We are still working with them for every board recruitment process.  The partner we worked with is Laura Edgar.

    We have engaged John Diner and were quite happy with his services.

    We have used Deloitte for a Board Governance Effectiveness Review as well as a Committee Performance Review and were very impressed with their process, their summaries of themes for consideration and their recommendations.
