Values-added

“Doing good”.


The two words that define ANHH’s clear and steadfast purpose – to share our experience and knowledge to make a difference to people’s lives and to give something back to the world we live in.


We are certain that good governance – vision, strategy, leadership, risk awareness, assurance, and transparency – allows organisations to deliver optimally on their aims and ambitions.


We aim to build better governance to do good through our value-added activities. We strive continuously to improve the quality of our service, to add new features and benefits for our clients, to customise our offer to each client’s needs, and to streamline our own processes to make us as effective as we can be.


But we know that our greatest impact is made when the ‘s’ is added, when our efforts become values-added. Values are those guiding principles that shape an organisation’s actions and decisions. At ANHH, they influence how we work as a team, interact with our clients, and present ourselves to the community. They support our culture and identity and set the tone and tenet for our service offer.


The picture as shown here hangs on our office wall. It’ll come as no surprise to many of you that it sits in an orange frame. It echoes Sir Robert Baden-Powell’s last message to Boy Scouts when he encouraged them to “try to leave this world a little better than you found it”.


When I founded ANHH in 2020 I had guiding principles of being “to the point” and “for a change”. Those still hold but, when Sindy joined me in 2021, we worked together to specify the five brand values that still sit on our website.


Then, at the very end of last year, with Hayley and Grace established as vital members of our consulting team, we held a terrific session – facilitated by our friends at Sallara Marketing – to look at those values afresh. It afforded a much-needed but rarely-possible opportunity to take stock of who we are, what we do, and how we behave.


Over the next five weeks, through this blog, the team will introduce you to our new brand values. Don’t expect a revolution, but I hope you’ll acknowledge a company that strides into 2023 ever more confident, and is ever bolder in the impression we want to make.


Changing the world may be asking a bit too much, but I remain unashamed, unabashed and unapologetic about ANHH’s core purpose.


I quote others only to better express myself (thanks, Michel de Montaigne). As Ralph Waldo Emerson – the nineteenth century American essayist, lecturer, philosopher, abolitionist, and poet – once put it:


“…to know that even one life has breathed easier because you have lived – that is to have succeeded.”


As you start 2023, why not take the time to review your own organisation’s values? It will serve to reinforce the path you’re on or may even signal some change in direction.


If there’s anything ANHH can do to support that journey, you know where to find us.
