Local Government

(includes Councils, CCOs, CCTOs and funding agencies)

Jeremy Bendall was asked to look at best practice Board Governance for the newly established Local Government Funding Agency. The purpose was to review what we had achieved to date and to look at gaps which if filled would improve our identification and management of both risk and opportunities. Jeremy very quickly understood our unique governance model by reading relevant documentation and overseas research and was able to use his local authority experience to highlight areas to work on. Our Board and management are grateful for his services.”

“The Council contracted Jeremy Bendall to initially review our risk management approach and recommend improvements consistent with good practice. Jeremy quickly attained an understanding of the Council’s business and worked with the management and governance to develop our risk identification, tolerance and management model. We have also utilised Jeremy’s skills in facilitating Council planning. The Council has retained Jeremy as we implement this model and ensure it is embedded into our strategic and business operations.”
