A strong governance framework and well-balanced board are essential ingredients for board leadership success. We work with for-purpose boards to optimise for high-impact performance and sustainability.


    We conduct Board reviews to ensure the structure and performance of the Board reflects best practice and will support the future strategic direction of the organisation. Whilst the standard metrics are included in our Board reviews, we focus on additional elements specific to social-purpose organisations that we have built drawing on our experience over the last decade.


    By understanding the context and the external operating environment of social-purpose organisations, we work with Chairs and Directors to ensure they have the right mix of skills, perspectives and experience around the Boardroom table. We consider individual and organisational purpose, motivation, skills, experience and preparedness to ensure optimal performance that will sustain the organisation over time

    Angus White, Chair (Former)

    Milk Crate Theatre

      'Milk Crate Theatre engaged People for Purpose to assist us with a board review and subsequent board recruitment. They took the time required to understand our strategy, priorities and culture working individually with our board and management and later as a group. The process was clearly mapped out, and both the board and management gained insightful and useful feedback and advice   I was impressed by the genuine understanding of the organisational culture of Milk Crate Theatre and our Ensemble who are confronted with significant socio-​economic ​disadvantage. People for Purpose were then able to engage their strong networks within the for-purpose sector to assist us with board succession. They take great care with their relationships, seeing them as transformational rather than just transactional, and you can see this in their communication and followups. Their name says it all.'
