Retained Advisory: How we can work with you

Over time, we have evolved a number of effective routes for clients to leverage the benefit of our expertise, market knowledge and leadership experience.  Our approach is founded on a strong primary relationship with one (or sometimes more) of our Retained Advisory professionals that typically runs for six to twelve months or longer.  And, behind their primary advisor, clients have access to the combined expertise and capability of our expanding team of Retained Advisory professionals.  

Our Retained Advisory professionals all utilise their experience and expertise across a portfolio of roles.  Kingsmead Square offer up-front advice on your needs, role description, fit with your current governance and organisation and introduce you to one or a number of our Retained Advisory professionals; we charge a small percentage of the first year's Retained Advisory fee for this package. You then contract directly with our individual Retained Advisor  The range of retained advisory roles our professionals undertake include:

Non-executive Director

Strategic Advisor to the CEO/Managing Partner

Strategic Programme Steering Group Chair, Director or Independent Member

Mentor to an executive / leader

Interim part-time executive (including, for example, COO, Chief Strategy Officer, Chief Innovation Office, Compliance Officer)
