Board Evaluation Client

We collaborated with IoD Ireland for an external board evaluation. Guided by Carol Bolger, the evaluation was thorough, professional, and impartial. Carol showcased exceptional skills in highlighting best practices that will enhance our Board's performance going forward. IoD Ireland tailored the evaluation to suit our industry and specific circumstances. I wholeheartedly recommend IoD Ireland to others without any hesitation.
