Our Non-Executive works closely with both the shareholders and management team to ensure that we achieve our strategic goals whilst continuing to provide high level service and insurance solutions to our clients. Some of the areas in which his contribution has already proven to be invaluable are:

• Keyman recruitment & succession planning
• Corporate governance matters
• Developing new high level
   professional relationships
• Ambassadorial promotion
• Staff training & mentoring

We look forward to working with our NED for many years to come and remain utterly impressed by his enthusiastic and common sense approach to business.

Finding the right Non-Executive Chairman for your company can be a difficult challenge and especially for an SME like Simply Thank You, but how lucky was I to be introduced to Focus on Success who found the right person. They say that some of the qualities required of a NE
Chair are:-

• Independence
• Impartiality
• Wide Range of Experience
• Specialist Knowledge
• Personal Qualities

Well our Chair has all of these in bucket loads, along with his ability to quickly grasp some of the more complex issues we are faced with, which allows us to move forward quickly and develop strategies fit for our particular business needs. His flexibility with his time is also noteworthy which allows a more dynamic approach toward our clients. Charismatic in nature and ultra smart in appearance he has certainly raised our game when meeting with our blue chip client base..

Since our NED joined our team in 2013 we have benefitted from his experience and knowledge in a number of ways. He acts as chairman in our monthly board meetings bringing a high level of professionalism to our board meetings in which he has a wealth of experience in financial and operational matters. He has also spent time in our business coaching and mentoring our director team and training our sales team on a variety of skills based around the sales process and customer management.

The biggest advantage to him being part of Agile has been the amount of new business he has helped us win through his network and understanding of what his clients need. We would highly recommend our NED to anyone to recruit as a non-executive director.

Gavin Scotchbrook
COO Agile Group

I joined Active in 2007 as a controlling director with a vision of developing the company from what it was, into what you see today.
My problem however was that neither I nor any other Director had any experience of progressing in this way so the thought was very
daunting. Whilst confident that our objectives were achievable, the ‘how’ was a very different prospect.

Having grown generously during the following years, we were suddenly controlling a very different animal to that in 2007. Our decisions would have an even greater impact on ourselves, our staff and our clients so we needed to get it right. We therefore enlisted the help of
a NED in January 2011. This gave us someone to turn to for advice, someone to bounce ideas off and someone to give us confidence to continue with our endeavours. We have not only grown as a company since this date, but also as Directors of the business. If you have a desire to grow, or just become better at what you do, I would strongly advocate enlisting the help of an NED. We wouldn’t be where we are without one.
