Another SMART Choice

Another SMART Choice

The People Organisation has been appointed to work with the Board of the leading US non-profit organisation, SMART Recovery, on a range of business and governance issues.

“I am delighted to be working with the Board of Directors of SMART Recovery, whose growing worldwide reputation for their unique, science-based approach to recovery from addiction and addictive behaviour, makes the work particularly important to get right,” says Mark Butler, who is leading the project.

“In 2013 and into 2014 I undertook a full governance review for SMART Recovery UK so it is a real privilege now to be working over the summer with the Trustees of the main US Board.  Trustees work in different time zones and markets across the US, Australia and Europe so important business is conducted a lot by more remote means.  This also makes the facilitation of group working and review around governance quite a challenge, but rewarding to get right,” Mark adds.

“This is the 20th Anniversary year for SMART and the Board are very wisely wanting to be in good shape for the next 20 years, so looking at making sure everything is working well and can handle the challenges ahead makes really good sense,” Mark concludes.
