Benefit from 20+ years of governance experience

I’m Carol Scholes, founder of Overview Effect.

 

After working with hundreds of organisations, I realised how difficult it can be for board members to get educated about governance.

 

Most resources weren’t easily accessible, were out of date, or not available at all.

 

That’s why I’ve distilled the best practices that every board should follow.

 

Now, you can access the crucial knowledge and tools at your own convenience.
