Board Advisory

Speaking your language.

Board Meeting Picture

Technology is a key enabler to any business. In fact, technology is so critical to the delivery of modern business services that our customers recognise this is a Board-level consideration. It requires review and discussion at every meeting. All too often though, we find a disconnect between the senior leaders in the business, and their IT compatriots.

As executive-level IT and business leaders, Lights-On has been engaged by numerous clients to provide Board level advice on technology matters. Often acting as in interface or guide, Lights-On helps businesses and their IT function ‘speak the same language’. This helps to remove ‘techno’ language barriers, improve communication, and develop strategic and operational understanding of IT across the business, but particularly with key decision makers.

If you feel you may benefit from such services, contact us here for a confidential, no obligation discussion about your needs and how we could assist you.

Lights-On is engaged by several firms to advise the board and has done so successfully for many years. We have experiences as consultants but also as IT Directors within large and medium sized law firms and know how to improve communication and collaboration between the board and the IT department.

brighterphilosophy

We take pride in our ethos of independence, depth of knowledge and ethics

Confidentiality

Consulting is a confidential business and the sectors in which we operate demand even greater levels of confidentiality. We take it very seriously and practice what we preach.

Experience

Experience is as much about learning from mistakes as it is from doing things right first time from planning and consideration.

Independence

That ethos of “if it feels wrong, even if others don’t think it is, then avoid it” remains a strong principle for Lights-On today.

Integrity

Integrity is at the heart of what we do. We are not a regulated industry like the legal sector in which we often operate however we treat work as if we were regulated.

Knowledge

Most of Lights-On’s consultants come from a wide background of IT and management covering sectors as wide as banking, the energy sector, manufacturing and consultancy.
