Boardroom and Executive Briefings
Insight & advice for top management and leaders from our senior advisors
Our Boardroom and Executive Briefing service offers access to incisive briefings on the key economic issues of the day, and their crucial business implications, from our most senior and experienced economists.
Carefully designed to meet the decision-making needs and responsibilities of the most senior leadership in client businesses and organisations, our briefings draw on the extensive expertise of our 250 economists and consultants in 22 offices around the globe.
The service harnesses our in-depth economic data and forecasting capabilities, together with an analysis of key risks. Our senior advisors will distil the results of this analysis to meet your exact requirements - and deliver the sharp and actionable insights you need for success.
These presentations are designed to be delivered at Board or Executive Committee level. They will be delivered with jargon-free clarity and high conviction calls on the key questions confronting clients.
The length and coverage will be tailored to individual requirements and can be one-off, for instance at the start of the corporate planning process, or on a regular quarterly or six-monthly basis. Others will want to employ these briefings as part of senior management away days.
