About Us Better Boards

Master the Art of the Boardroom™

Better Boards exists to help you Master the Art of the Boardroom™

Are you on the board of a not-for-profit or for-purpose organisation? Do you want to improve your governance skills and knowledge? Would you like to see your organisation thrive in the future?

If yes, then Better Boards is here to help you. Better Boards works with board members and directors of not-for-profit organisations who want to help their organisation thrive through improving their own and their boards skills and knowledge.

At Better Boards our north star is:

How can we better help you to master the art of the boardroom, so you and your organisation thrive?

We use this question to guide us in the creation and delivery of a range of director professional development opportunities and boardroom tools that are focused on the unique challenges that not-for-profit directors and their organisations face.

Our products and services

Over the years (Better Boards has been around in a few different forms since 2001) we have created a wide variety of products and services that have helped thousands of directors across Australia and New Zealand. Our current offerings include:

Everything we do is focused on not-for-profit and for-purpose organisations.

We aim to make our professional development opportunities engaging, practical and actionable because many aspects of governance and leadership, while important, can be dry topics. But this doesn’t mean learning them should be boring, you should be engaged. What you learn should be practical and something that you can implement in your own organisation.

Our Team

We’re a small team with a diverse set of skills that punches above our weight! We’re looking forward to seeing you at one of our events (digital or physical) or helping make your organisation better with our board tools.
