Sandi's clarity, passionate delivery and comprehensive knowledge on the key concepts of governance excellence and best practices was instrumental in guiding us towards a highly effective governing style and process.

As you can appreciate the difficulties of engaging board members on the topic of governance, I must say that Sandi showed strong communication skills. We did conduct a search prior to hiring Sandi and she is clearly in Canada the reference in terms of governance in the not-for-profit sector.

Canadian Security Association

Expert. Insightful.  Enlightening.  No nonsense.  Humorous.  These are all the qualities that Sandi Humphrey brings with her when she does what she knows best: educating Boards and staff on the governance that will bring excellence to their organization.

Community and Hospital Infection Control Association

Sandi L. Humphrey, CAE is the driving force behind Board Know-How! Sandi served as a not-for-profit executive for over twenty years, twelve of which were as Chief Staff Officer of an association comprised of Boards – it was there that Sandi’s interest and passion for governance took hold as she spent her days developing and delivering training for her membership.

Over the past fifteen-plus years as a governance consultant, Sandi has authored, co-authored or contributed to a number of books and publications for not-for-profit boards and staff executives – she has been referred to as Canada’s most prolific author on not-for-profit governance.

Sandi spends such of her time face-to-face delivering governance training to her not-for-profit clients, who describe her delivery style as passionate and injected with humor, and consistently cite her ability to clearly illustrate the difference between governance and management.
