Leadership & Boards 

The Board Game

The Board Game is a new offer from Jenny Knott and Robert Rowland Smith. It combines training in how to read board papers with how to read the room.

Those wishing to up their game on internal and/or external boards are invited to join the first cohort, starting in 2024.

Leadership Programmes

Robert has designed and delivered leadership programmes for organisations as diverse as Asahi (brewers), Farfetch (fashion), Rio Tinto (mining), State Farm (insurance), and 1337 (consulting).


He typically works alongside partners such as Thompson Harrison, Oxford Saïd Business School, and the business psychologist Björn Atterstam.

The outcomes achieved include:

1. Alignment of leaders around the business strategy

2. Alignment of leaders with each other

3. Increased leadership capability among the senior executives


Below is the outline of a programme created with Björn Atterstam for a multinational tech company. In this case, the programme was delivered online as a series of six webinars.
