Contribute to the performance of the governance boards structures : Assess corporate governance boards both individual by individual and collectively, analyse operating visions and strategies, decision-making methods, cooperation intelligences and, of course, individual and collective behaviour in order to propose potential avenues for adaptation and progress. These are all factors that contribute to the performance of the structures that make up the governance of our companies.
