Appointment of new Board Members
Shakespeare’s Globe’s historic site on London’s Southbank is home to two venues – the Globe Theatre and the Sam Wanamaker Playhouse.
“Philip helped Shakespeare’s Globe with the search and appointment of a significant number of trustees. He was diligent in his research, responsive to our request for searches that encompass a full range of skills. We were consistently impressed by his positivity, his dedication to the task, and the flows of well-arranged information about each candidate, organised in such a way that it was always easy to navigate and consider the options before us. I have no hesitation to recommend his services and skills in this regard.”
— Margaret Casely-Hayford CBE, Chair
Innovation, diversity, and excellence sit at the very heart of all that they do on and offstage, and they continue to make tough decisions to survive, determined to grasp the opportunity to become ever more progressive, relevant, and ambitious than before; in 2022 actively seeking to attract people who can help sharpen their thinking and bring new and diverse voices and experience as they plan for the Globe’s recovery and future.
Supported by Philip Nelson of the Hiring Department, this wideranging open recruitment campaign attracted an impressively large number of high-calibre applicants from all walks of life, and resulted in the appointment of 8 individuals bringing diverse skills, thinking, and experience, ready to plan for a strong and successful future.
It also resulted in the identification of three further individuals who are expected to be appointed to the Board in 2023 and new relationships being forged with Ogilvy, the New York based Global and British advertising, marketing, and public relations agency and Southwark College.
It’s far too easy just talking about the challenges we face in attracting leadership talent.
