What our clients say
I am pleased with the high calibre of appointments to the board of the Office for Legal Complaints. Alison, Dale and Martin bring a wide range of experience and expertise that will further bolster the OLC as it implements its plans to transform the service it offers to complainants and the legal services profession.Dr Helen Philips
Chair, Legal Services Board
We commissioned Inclusive Boards to work on our Trustee search for a candidate with a finance/business background. We were extremely pleased with the longlist of candidates presented to us. The candidates were exceptional and diverse from groups that are currently under-represented on our board. The communication was consistent and service delivered was of the highest standard. We set out to find one Trustee, but through this process, we were able to appoint three candidates to our board.Kate Varah
Executive Director, The Old Vic
Inclusive Boards were excellent at putting together a diverse and highly qualified longlist of candidates. The communication was consistent and the service delivered was extremely personable.
