How can we help you today?

Boardroom Metrics was founded in 1994 as a full service management consulting firm.

Over the years it has evolved to meet the needs of our clients including interim management recruiting, post-corporate executive branding and social media consulting. We still do some of all these things if that’s what our clients require.

However, there are two areas of our practice that we focus on most: corporate governance consulting and RFP response writing. We focus on these two areas because over the years we’ve developed unique expertise and reputations in both.

Jim leads the governance practice and Karen leads the RFP practice. Together with a unique team of consultants, writers, graphic artists, editors and project managers, this focus has ensured successful clients and a thriving business. 

Corporate Governance Consulting and Facilitation

The three elements of a Board’s role are risk, strategy and performance management of the CEO. We help Boards execute their role and significantly improve governance effectiveness.

An experienced Director, CEO and governance expert, Jim Crocker consults and speaks on corporate governance effectiveness. ‘Governance failures happen every day. Think Facebook, Tesla, Volkswagen. Boards are stepping up or they risk being part of  their own unfortunate – and preventable – governance headline.’
