Canning Consulting Launches Essential Governance Services for Small to Medium Businesses, Not-for-Profits, and Government Agencies

VANCOUVER, BC--(Marketwired - March 03, 2016) -  Canning Consulting, a company which aids executives and board members in managing change and optimizing organizational performance, introduced a suite of governance services for small-to-medium sized businesses, not-for-profits and government agencies to develop the critical governance systems required in today's complex business landscape.

While large-scale failures of governance -- including the Volkswagen emissions scandal and the sudden collapse of Goodwill's Toronto operation -- have dominated the headlines recently, smaller organizations are equally at risk when executives and board members don't have the tools and processes in place to help them govern effectively and responsibly.

"Small and medium sized organizations are recognizing that thorough governance systems make sound business sense," says Simon Canning, principal of Canning Consulting. "In our fast-paced, interconnected world, it's essential for executives and board members to have the training, tools, and practices that enable them address issues quickly, communicate more collaboratively, and demonstrate value clearly to their stakeholders. This is what our system is designed to achieve."

Unlike their public counterparts, private companies are not legally required to report on their corporate governance processes. However, this does not diminish the importance of having a board of directors who are equipped to provide insight, foresight, and oversight. By supporting sound financial reporting, fiscal planning, long-term strategy, and succession planning, good governance enhances an organization's resilience while building critical trust among stakeholders and the wider community.

"The challenge for many boards is the need to provide value to the organization via regular but periodic board meetings," said Colin Davis, VP of the British Canadian Business Association. "The governance audit Canning conducted for us delivered acute awareness and key tools to progress with fresh ideas, and become a more engaged, high performing board."
