Board and Advisory

Chairs and boards play a critical role in the overall strategy, governance, culture, and purpose of our client’s organisations. A talented, diverse, and experienced board is critical to provide future insight for organisations and effectively manage potential risk. This is particularly true for global development, with rapid change in the INGO world and a changing economic and political environment. Yet new opportunities, new donors and actors driving global change make this an incredibly interesting and exciting time to be on Boards in our sector.

At Red Sea, we are ready to work with you as partners in building the best boards of executives possible. Our Board and Advisory practice provide executive search and consulting services to our global clients, supporting your Chair, Selection Committee, CEO and leadership team in the identification and development of high-performing boards. Now, both internally and externally, there is much more accountability and engagement expected of boards, due to increased scrutiny around spending, governance, and human resources issues in development such as safeguarding and employee discrimination. In addition, there is a growing demand from senior executives for their boards to provide insight and strategy and be accountable for ensuring growth and sustainability.

We bring experience and understanding of some of the complications of large multinational organisations and confederation structures and related governance, and a deep understanding of our sectors. We specialize in bringing gender balance and cultural diversification to Boards, whilst also finding the skills to strengthen and drive your organisation. Our global reach also enables us to be creative when it comes to talent solutions; you can expect to meet candidates who don’t show up in traditional databases and who bring a diversity of all kinds from all regions internationally.
