What is governance?

Good governance is the hallmark of a strong, effective and productive organisation. It has the power to transform an organisation’s culture and positively affect the output of every person within it.


Governance is the system of rules, procedures and processes that your organisation uses to direct and control its actions. It is visible to your employees, suppliers, customers and stakeholders. Poor governance significantly increases the risk of corporate failure, reputational damage and bureaucracy.

Our partnerships

We believe great brands should help one another, which is why we have partnered with some amazing people and companies who have a similar ethos and outlook on life as we do.

Our Award winning Services

We pride ourselves on our counsel and implementation but we provide the more ‘traditional’ company secretarial services too.

AGM Support

The Annual General Meeting with your owners, is mandatory for most organisations and stands as an opportunity to demonstrate transparency and good corporate governance.

Board Evaluation

Leadership set the tone and timbre which then permeates throughout the organisation. The governance framework acts as the blueprint for implementation.

Board Pack Efficiency

Board packs can become very cumbersome over time and a Director’s capacity is often limited and reviewing countless pages of peripheral material is not a good use of their time.

Coaching & Training

Our highly skilled team have acquired a wealth of knowledge over extensive careers, and are passionate about passing on their expertise and developing the next generation of senior professionals.

Code Benchmarking

The positive impact of good governance on performance, integrity and efficiency has led to governance codes for most specialist sectors in the UK.

Corporate Reporting

With reporting expectations growing year-on-year and investors demanding more. A clear investment case which includes a governance underpin is more important now than ever.


Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) reporting and investing is gathering increased momentum. ESG is the umbrella term for often purpose led, sustainable and responsible organisations.

Governance Framework

The long-term performance and success of an organisation is a direct result of its approach to leadership, management, and the culture; it’s people. The methodology under which these principles and rules exists, and are sculpted, is corporate governance.

Governance Health Check

Our business health check analyses the governance framework of an organisation to ensure it is robust, effective and efficient. No stone is left unturned.

Governance Projects

Whether you want to grow your business, secure investment, AIM/FTSE list or completely restructure; we provide the level of support your board and management team need, to ensure the right decisions are made at the right time.

Interim CoSec Support

There are c.10,000 qualified company secretaries in the UK, the demand outweighs the supply. At the time of writing we are facing economic uncertainty and unprecedent upheaval in the labour force.

Subsidiary Transformation

Subsidiaries can support expansion into new countries and markets and set the company up for future asset or business divestments without affecting the overall group.
