What our clients say
I wanted to say thanks for all the great work on our Board Effectiveness Review. It landed very well with the Board and comments after you left the meeting were all very positive. Your approach of using both quantitative and qualitative analysis was exactly what was required.
Chair, UK Bank
Four months later I still have your board report on my desk split into sections and find myself referring to it most days
Group CoSec, Centrica
His experienced, thoughtful and persuasive approach has moved mountains for those he works with.
Prof. Bryan Foss, Digital NED, Risk & Audit Chair
A massive thanks for your work on the review – it was a hugely valuable exercise, which was both insightful and informative and we all found you and Bryan incredibly easy to work with.
Head of Governance, UK Bank
Halex is especially good at helping organisations make their risk management more useful - to run the business better, rather than just produce lots of charts. They know their stuff very well but are always practical and grounded in what works in real life rather than textbooks.
Jonathan Hayward, Independent Audit
Halex provided cutting-edge insight and then helped us reframe a tricky issue with considered and actionable advice.
CEO, HSBC Pension Scheme
I thought your report was going to be rather dry - I certainly didn’t anticipate getting as much from it as I have.
Brilliant facilitator. And difficult areas raised. Impressive.
CRO, Large Swedish FS organisation
Halex provided us with thought provoking insights and suggested practical solutions that stood out from other larger consultancies.
Head of Internal Audit, Yorkshire Building Society
Halex has a deep understanding and practical command of corporate governance and risk management, working in a collaborative manner, building on common ground and establishing consensus.
Alex Hindson, Group CRO, Argo Global
Thanks for all the support you have given us. Your advice was always very clear, and refreshingly put in a straightforward way.
INED, Top 10 UK lifeco,
You spoke more sense on risk and control in one hour than I have heard in this company in the last 15 years.
Group FC, FTSE30
I don’t usually give compliments, but you have been a beacon of stability throughout our transformation project.
CEO, Large European bank
We asked Halex Consulting to carry out an independent review of our risk management framework as part of our annual assessment process. Chris worked closely with the BBB senior risk team throughout the process, constructively challenging our risk arrangements and providing valuable suggestions for future developments throughout.
