Governance

Anson Advisory assists in developing and implementing governance principles and actions.

What is Governance?

Governance encompasses the system by which an organisation is controlled and operates, and the mechanisms by which it, and its people, are held to account. Ethics, risk management, compliance and administration are all elements of governance. It is the decisions and actions of those who run a school, country, city or business.

At a privately owned business level, governance is often overlooked, resulting in sub-optimal outcomes. In businesses where there are multiple owners or controlling entities, such as a family business, partnerships or formal collaborations, good governance will promote and enhance, allowing the group to outperform the sum of its parts.

Stirling was extremely efficient, he gave us structure and motivation, simplified our processes, saved us a bunch of money and helped us develop a strong business strategy to grow our business through the next decade. Thank you very much for reducing our stress level and we look forward to working with you further.

We have known Stirling from Anson Advisory for a number of years, having met when looking to purchase a business. To which he later became our business banker. Whilst he wasn't in the town we eventually purchased our business in, he had won us with his attention to detail to go over and above what's required with a professional and broad knowledge of not just the banking sector but a thorough knowledge of all facets of business related issues or topics. We subsequently reached out some years later when attempting to grow our business and obtain support with grant preparation as we knew from previous experience his professional acumen was outstanding. We have now been approved for the grant applied for, which is a monumental win for a SME that is usually reserved for much larger operations. The department delivering the funding was extremely impressed with the detail and content provided mentioning that "it was amazing and stood out from over 276 shortlisted applications" Stirling we couldn't have done it without you. If you are looking for professional business services in finance or the broader business scope you need to reach out to Anson Advisory today.

I have been extremely privileged to have had Stirling Tavener provide business support to my company periodically for more than a year. His contributions have been wide ranging and also deep and complex, covering the functions of market analysis, financial analysis, management reporting and process improvement.

Very quick to grasps the concepts of my business, Stirling brought to bear his extensive knowledge of other industry sectors in which he has worked, his deep analytical skills and his experience in the banking sector to help us better understand our business’s key cost and performance drivers.

In addition, Stirling was able to translate the resultant metrics into practical action plans which defined cost and profit drivers, areas of risk, and where improvement was required.
I highly recommend Stirling’s services to any business; perhaps for just a ‘health check’ to see where or how you could improve or for a thorough, very quantitative analysis of the complexities of your business.

The Anson Approach

Anson Advisory assists in developing and implementing governance principles and actions to develop fair and robust decision making-processes for operations with multiple owners who may struggle to agree at times. We help unite direction, promote fairness and remove decisions based on emotions, creating far stronger businesses.

How we do this is dependent upon each situation, but can involve implementing board structures, with the Anson Advisory facilitator adopting a ‘temporary chair-person role’ and simultaneously upskilling board members (business owners) in governance processes and systems, while addressing specific organisational issues. In this way we achieve multiple outcomes and work toward an exit for the Anson Advisory facilitator, allowing the group to continue far more effectively, productively and fairly than before.
