For better board reporting

Write to Govern was founded by board-paper specialist Mary Morel to improve the quality of board reports and papers.

If you are a director, you know the frustration of reading long, poorly written papers. Sometimes you don’t understand what the paper is saying or what you’re being asked to approve. Or if the paper has a lot of irrelevant information, you may be sidetracked and find yourself delving into management issues.

If you are a senior executive, you know the frustration of working with your team to prepare papers that are not well received yet have taken ages to prepare.

Board reporting doesn’t have to be like this.

Working with executives and their teams

I specialise in working with senior executives and their teams to make a real and lasting difference to their executive, committee and board reports.

Working with me, you will find that:

  • Your readers will thank you for the clarity and brevity of your team’s writing
  • You will save time – no longer will you have to spend hours reviewing and editing your team’s work
  • Your team will meet writing deadlines

Above all, your audiences (executive leadership team, committee or board) will receive the information they need to be informed and make informed decisions. No longer will they have to wade through clutter or ask your team for more information.

Why work with me

With a background in teaching and corporate training, I’ve specialised in working with board papers for more than 10 years. I’ve read more board packs than most directors and know how hard you have to concentrate to understand the content – and then remember it!

I’ve successfully completed the Australian Institute of Company Directors’ course and for many years, I facilitated workshops for the Governance Institute of Australia.

My book, Write to Govern: How to write effective board papers provides practical advice for writers.
