BoardMatters – insights for non-executive directors
In order to provide effective guidance and counsel to the executive and achieve successful outcomes, it is essential for non-executive directors to have a comprehensive understanding on a range of business issues.
Our goal is to help you explore current business and market issues through the lens of the unique challenges faced by non-executive directors.
Here we profile some of our recent global and local thought leadership to help directors evaluate complex problems, develop fresh approaches and implement practical solutions.

We also share an Australian-first risk management initiative between EY and Bravehearts that is set to shift the way organisations protect children from sexual assault. Businesses can interact with children in many ways; employing them, serving them, or as they accompany their parents and families. Recent experience shows most organisations either totally lack or have inadequate policy or governance frameworks required to help meet their duty of care obligations or to reduce the potential for significant reputational, financial, legal and regulatory consequences.The ‘ChildPlace Health & Safety’ initiative helps you to understand, identify, reduce and manage the risk of child sexual assault in the workplace and to respond appropriately to incidents, expanding your safety culture to include this important and high impact risk.
