Originally created to focus on a piece of critical industry leading research and to gain some real opinion on the latest thinking, we utilise our extensive network to make a continual difference in today’s ever changing environment and to continually to push the barriers in this arena.

Our current in-depth research initiative with Dr. Anthony Hesketh of Lancaster University Management School is focused on 'Building a Non-Executive Director Talent Pool for Inclusive Capitalism - Do you see what I see?' The findings will provide a clear blue print for Non-Executive Directors, experienced or aspiring, and Chairs to help with the challenges of future selection and talent pool considerations. Initial findings with be shared with participants ahead of a major launch of the findings in 2015.

As a previous HR Director, the research that Mullwood Partnership is conducting holds great relevance and value for global businesses today. Sharon and Jo have always been very innovative and forward thinking individuals who challenge traditional thinking and this is highlighted in the research subject matter. The results will assist individuals in mapping out their career, and perhaps more importantly, show organisations how to really ensure they are providing their talent pipeline to the board with the right career experiences from the word go.
