Westlake Governance helps organisations and their leaders understand what good governance is and how to achieve it. Our vast practical experience means solutions that work.
Richard's Blog on Chairing the Board
Richard Westlake's blog is chairingtheboard.com, he informally calls it ‘CHAFTROU – chairing, for the rest of us.’
We hope it’ll become a useful reference tool for chairs and experienced board members of all those thousands of organisations, of all sizes, for which we share the privilege and challenge of providing governance leadership, control and oversight. Richard says "I don't expect everyone to agree with everything I say, but if I’ve started you thinking, then I think I’ve done my job."
Richard's Book On Governance
Richard Westlake has written a timely book on what makes good governance, published by the World Bank's Global Corporate Governance Forum. While Guidance for the Directors of Banks is directly relevant to the banking environment, its principles and guidance have much wider application.
