The Our Cat Herder Story
In 2017 Our Cat Herder was acquired by Better Boards, one of Australia’s leading providers of professional development programs for NFP and For-Purpose directors.
Quirky name, serious business.
Our Cat Herder provides a tool for those with the job of preparing Agendas, background documents, taking Minutes and coordinating communications between members of boards and committees. It’s an online Secretary or Executive Assistant to boards and committees.
If the old method of coordinating members’ timetables, photocopying and collating reams of paper, and storing documents in huge binders was like trying to herd cats, then the cats have been wrangled into order!
Created by two experienced executives with decades of experience on Government and non-Government boards and committees, as well as serving as CEOs to numerous Boards, the creators knew that streamlining the process of board administration into the online world would help organisations save money and time.
The portal also encourages members to communicate between meetings thereby increasing productivity and improving overall connectivity between members. Boards and committees that communicate often and positively, increase their efficiency and effectiveness.
