Latest intelligence and articles from Shelley Dooley-Williams:

With the backdrop of the pandemic, it is perhaps unsurprising that the theme for this year for International Women’s Day is #choosetochallenge.  My personal pledge is to raise awareness of the importance and progress being made around gender diversity at a board level. The aim of my pledge was to help to advance two important topics.  Firstly, to improve levels of gender equality and inclusivity. And, secondly, to raise awareness around the positive impact that diversity and inclusion can have on the effectiveness of boards and improved levels of corporate governance overall.

Co-worker review:

Shelley is stunning. She challenges what ‘power’ traditionally signifies. I have worked with her since March 2020 – what a year – and in my experience, she is authoritative, persuasive and determined. She is also reflective, thoughtful and inclusive. Shelley is an outstanding expert in her field, direct and insightful, without being directional. She thinks and operates laterally across a broad landscape and is much more than a silo’d ‘SME’ in a single subject, taking a lead role beyond her day job in the crossover of finance and education as Deputy Chair of the London Institute of Business & Finance. She is motivational, encouraging others to succeed. She always gives credit for ideas and builds on them, rather than rebadging them as her own. Personally she was invaluable to me in talking me through my successful application to become a trustee of a leading industry body. She listens and takes advice, not only from peers but also from juniors, and is disarmingly modest in acknowledging their guidance, for instance on social media. Despite a substantial workload, she is also unafraid to take on additional volunteer roles that tackle complex and emotive subjects – including our response to the Black Lives Matter movement and the gender pay gap. In summary, Shelley gives the best of herself and gets the best out of others, all to a clear and greater purpose. That’s power.

Assisting a bank to modernise their governance framework

Sionic helped a global banking organisation with an overseas parent, UK and offshore operations to modernise their governance framework. We analysed their current governance framework and assessed additional independent findings; reviewed the Articles of Association; tested the governance framework and recommended remedial actions. We then delivered a suite of new constitutional documents which not only resolved the identified gaps but also improved both transparency and accountability, conducting Board effectiveness reviews across various legal entities. As a result, our client gained a strengthened governance framework and a sharpened, lasting understanding of best practice.
