Based on my research, I and two colleagues (Prof. Steven De Haes - U. Antwerp, and Dr Greg Timbrell, QUT) contributed Chapter 29 to Dr Richard Leblanc's best selling international book, 'The Handbook of Board Governance: A Comprehensive Guide for Public, Private, and Not-for-Profit Board Members'. 

With over 50 international contributors, the book provides comprehensive, expert-led coverage of all aspects of corporate governance for public, private and nonprofit boards, large and small. The book combines academic rigor and practitioner experience to provide practical guidance and deep insights into current and emerging issues that boards are grappling with.


Another book chapter, this time in Dr Karen Martyn's  'Corporate Governance: A Practical Handbook - 2nd Edition.

This guide is a user-friendly resource for those needing a practical set of tools to carry out the complex work of the board of directors. No matter what your experience level, this book will inform and stimulate your thinking and help you build the best governance knowledge and practices for your organisation.

Key benefits of the guide include:

  • checklists and templates (also available on CD included with the book) enable you to develop a comprehensive set of governance tools and documents
  • sample policies and procedures assist with the practical application of best practice techniques
  • guidance on the new Health and Safety at Work Act helps your board demonstrate compliance.
