Board Level Support 

Amongst the very small number of UK firms with the experience to offer credible counsel, Executive Action has for many years offered authoritative advice to boards and individuals at board level.

Led by Anne Isaacs, we offer tailored support to meet the individual needs of, typically, main board executive directors, executive committee members, divisional leaders and senior partners in leading professional services firms.

We have many years of experience in working with clients who, having enjoyed career success, are contemplating, anticipating or undergoing significant change. This may be in the context of a career crossroads, the perceived need to develop further board-level skills, or the desire to develop a portfolio career spanning public and private sector appointments.

Why choose Executive Action? 

Our approach is tailored to each client’s individual achievements, ambitions and needs.

Experience has shown us that a ‘one size fits all’ approach is neither appropriate nor cost-effective at this level, and therefore our services are bespoke to individual circumstances. This enables us to:

  • focus on the essentials for success
  • propose the right duration of service for each individual
  • in some cases, provide options to extend the service and for flexible fee arrangements

Value for money
Although working with us entails a significant investment (whether our fees are paid by the individual or the employer), our focused approach and flexible fee options ensure that we are highly competitive.
