We provide Non-Executive Director (NED) services to a variety of client types and sectors, drawing upon our broad experience of leading and transforming businesses in both the UK and internationally.

A non-executive director is not involved in the day-to-day running of the organisation. The value in this role comes from their experience in an advisory capacity. They may objectively and constructively challenge the executive management team, whilst bringing wisdom, experience and expert knowledge to a broad range of business situations.

At 12th Man we provide visible or discrete NED services to our clients on a medium- or long-term basis, naturally tailored to their specific needs. 12th Man is a member and contributor to the Institute of Directors, and operates within its corporate compliance guidelines.

Key areas of NED involvement:

  • Strategic advice
  • Performance improvement
  • Business restructuring
  • Board dynamics & conduct
  • Industry networking
  • M&A guidance
  • Capability development

Please get in touch for more information and to discuss how a non-executive advisory role can bring benefits to your business strategy.

12th Man offers a management consultancy service to a variety of business scales, types and structures. We provide bespoke consultancy solutions to identify and execute performance improvement opportunities.

We deliver this through modern management consultancy methods, proven structure and process. We combine this with a wide breadth of commercial experience and shared best practice which has been fine-tuned through our experience of working on client projects with the ‘Big 3’ management consultancies in a variety of business situations.

We leave businesses with a legacy of tangible improvement
