Our approach to board evaluation is to recognise that there’s no point looking back over what you’ve done, when it’s how well you’re going to do in future that really matters.
This requires recognising that the board isn’t just governed by the formal roles, processes and strategies in place, but is also a social entity whose decisions are as much influenced by the informal culture, values and beliefs at play.
In response, our board evaluation methodology involves looking at all of the following six elements of good corporate governance:
By looking at each of these areas, we can provide you with deep, yet actionable, insights that catalyse open debate into the best ways to increase the effectiveness of your board and its ability to cope with future challenges.

A good, perceptive and competent review which promoted a very healthy debate during and post review and raised some helpful issues. I would certainly recommend Bvalco.James Hambro, Chairman, Guide Dogs for the Blind
The review was well managed, professional, attentive with well conducted challenges. It was a worthwhile process and importantly, it added value to the Board and thus to the business itself because it delivered actionable insights. I would certainly use Bvalco again and would be pleased to refer them.John Daly, Chairman, Britvic
“We used Bvalco to carry out our board review for three years in a row. The recommendations were very insightful. Overall it made the board process more efficient and improved understanding of the respective roles of the executives and non-executives.”Douglas Flint, Former Chairman, HSBC Group
“Often when you go in for a board review everyone sits around the table agreeing but then the report gets put away and nothing happens. Bvalco’s recommendations were very good - substantial but not too long. It made the board more reflective and creative.”Clarissa Farr, Fellow (NED), Winchester College
“We found the analysis was thorough and the final report was focussed and concise, without superfluous comment. The board will put the recommendations to good use and we would be happy to work with Bvalco again.”Charles Sinclair, Chairman, Associated British Foods plc
