What Our Clients Say

Our work with clients is often generated by referrals and endorsements.  We operate on the basis that, to continue to enjoy such recommendations, we need to continue to deliver an excellent service, based on our expertise, skills, knowledge and experience.

What do clients think about us, and the work we do?  The feedback is usually excellent, because we invest time beforehand understanding the client’s requirements.  That hopefully explains some of the following comments from a range of client assignments involving board evaluations, training and development interventions, and other director interactions.

Thank you for opening the door of corporate governance, as well as passing over so much knowledge of directors’ duties and liabilities. I would not hesitate to recommend this course to my colleagues.

I am delighted to act as a sponsor to one of the Leadership Development Programme candidates. I believe passionately in investing time to develop the next generation of the profession.

Leadership Development Programme - Candidate sponsor - Company Secretary, Financial Services

The Leadership Development Programme is an important initiative for developing the careers of our ambitious company secretaries, and helping us promote our role as the champions of the governance agenda at board level. We need to equip our members with the necessary skills to deliver that agenda with authority and credibility if the profession more widely is also to benefit.
