welcome to tom scollard consultancy

Effective governance does make a real difference! 

I have had the privilege of serving on many boards over the last thirty years, particularly non profit and school boards. I believe it is possible for trustees to make a positive, enduring and sustainable difference to the organisations they serve. Let's make a difference; a difference that really matters and that will last. Our organisations deserve the best governance they can get, and we as trustees need to ensure we provide it as best we can. 

If you think that I may be able to provide help to your organisation please do not hesitate to contact me.

Welcome to my website. 

Boards play a vital role in the life of an organisation, undertaking the responsibility to provide its direction, vision and mission. It is therefore essential for boards to have a solid foundation from which to provide for good decision-making, clear objectives, sustained improvement and efficiency to meet its mandate.
I offer training, mentoring and support for boards and management groups of all types including those of preschools, kindergartens, schools, non profit and mission organisations, other community groups and businesses. My key goal is to empower and equip boards and their members to become fully effective in their role where they serve through sustained effective governance.
