Governance Support Services

Governance support is an area of relevance for organisations who want to establish an effective governance framework and associated robust practices. Embracing a Māori perspective within governance also holds significance for both Māori and non-Māori entities alike.

Led by our Managing Director, Dr. Jim Mather, our governance support services can be customised to your needs.

Jim is an avid promoter of Māori governance and brings a wealth of knowledge within the governance sphere. Through his work he actively empowers and uplifts Māori having supported organisations such as Papakura Marae, Te Rūnanganui o Ngāpuhi, Te Akatea, Te Mātāwai and more, with governance workshop, advice and support.

As a Chartered Fellow of the NZ Institute of Directors and an experienced Chair and professional director, Dr. Jim Mather is well placed to oversee Board reviews incorporating both tikanga Māori and Western approaches to governance. He is a valued and vocal advocate for Māori interests across his many governance positions including Director of Southbase Construction Limited, Chair of Radio New Zealand, Independent Director of Tonkin + Taylor, National Member of the Institute of Directors and Chair of Ngāti Awa Group Holdings. 

Our governance support training and development can be tailored to suit your needs through individual and group options where required.
