  • The International Governance Leadership Conference (formerly National Conference) is only days away!

    Join us at The Hilton in Sydney or virtually as we celebrate our passion for governance excellence with thought and practice leaders from around Australia and overseas.

  • Upcoming webinar: 'Good governance for family-owned companies'

    Family-owned companies, whether small or medium or large can benefit from good governance practices. They face unique challenges in regard to succession planning, separation of powers and sustainability.

    When is the optimal time to put in place some of the ingredients of a traditional governance structure such as a board with independent directors or audit & risk committees? What sort of structures are appropriate to provide for a workable separation of powers and how does a family-company navigate cross-directorships and related-party transactions?

    Join us on the 12th/13th September to hear the answers to these questions discussed.

    *Please note: this webinar will be running at a different time to that of previous global webinars.

  • Ep.1: State of the Division conversation with HKCGI and MAICSA

    Are you a recent graduate, beginning your career as a governance professional?
    Are you an existing professional who wants to broaden their role?
    If so, be sure to have a watch of our first 'State of the Division' episode, in conversation with @Ellie Pang and @Justin J Anthony . As well as providing background and insights into what’s currently happening within their respective Divisions, both Ellie and Justin share their thoughts on why a career in governance is less well-known to prospective students, but how they’re both seeing many opportunities in a flourishing job market because governance professionals are quite simply always in demand. They also provide a few tips on what employers are looking for from new graduates, so if that applies to you, we highly recommend tuning in to this on-demand episode in order to get a head-start on those applications!

    Enter the Governance Gateway and watch it now!

  • 99seconds of governance on... 'Corporate Governance in Election Manifesto'

    "…it is time to talk about the changes and steps to take in order to have a more secure and safer environment…to give one’s idea on how to improve the surrounding for people to have safe living, rather than spreading racial and hate propaganda. Good governance on election manifesto gets the people to work on it the day they are elected to represent the community that voted for them. Good governance on election manifesto builds trust and gives confidence to people to vote for the right party that prioritises peoples’ health and wellbeing."

    Listen HERE to what Vasanthi had to share in her 99seconds of governance.

    What are the major impacts to the Governance profession right now?
    What issues are keeping you up at night?
    What are you struggling with in your day-to-day role?
    Why are we asking? Because we want to hear from you. In 99 Seconds, we want to hear those bitesize glimpses of governance where you share topics with your peers that are important and impactful to you. Just like Vasanthi did.

  • Eye-to-Eye Virtual Networking - A Summary

    Last week we launched our first Eye-to-Eye networking sessions on the topics of 'Governance and Data-Informed Decision Making' and 'EQ for the Governance Professional'. Attendees participated in some really engaging and insightful conversations, sharing their experiences and providing particular examples in response to questions asked. We've provided our summaries of both sessions, which you can read - and contribute to - if you head to the Governance Gateway sub-community.

    These sessions are not recorded so they're certainly not events to miss out on, but we'll always ensure there's a continued discussion that we invite all to participate in after the event.

    We'd like to say a big thank you to @Malcolm Fraser and @Paul Dubal for their contributions to both sessions, and for assisting us in launching this new initiative! We are greatly appreciative of the support, and strongly encourage others to review the summaries and share your own thoughts!

  • Only a few places remaining...!

    Don't forget we launch the first two sessions in our Quarter 1 'Eye-to-Eye Virtual Networking' tomorrow! There are limited spaces remaining & sessions will not be available on-demand, so be sure to secure your place and register now!

    Head to the Governance Gateway sub-community to find out more & register your place.

  • First 'Eye-to-Eye Virtual Networking' sessions announced!


    We're delighted to inform you that the first of our quarterly Eye-to-Eye virtual networking sessions are now open for registration. 

    All we'll say here is that there will be two different topical sessions, running at different times on Thursday 23rd February to accommodate for all time-zones. But you've got to have joined our sub-community to access the full information! So if you're keen to boost your professional development with a free discussion session on either 'Governance & Data-informed Decision-making' with @Malcolm Fraser or 'EQ for the Governance Professional' with @Paul Dubal, head on over to the Governance Gateway sub-community to register!

    Haven't joined our latest sub-community yet? Here's how:
  • Questions from the next generation...

    Whether you're new to the profession or you've worked in Governance for a while, as part of our recent Governance Gateway sub-community, we launched a 'Governance Then & Now' initiative. In this, we ask new and experienced professionals the same set of questions, in an attempt to see how perspectives have changed, if at all.

    Two of our new professionals posed the following questions:
    1. "Following the recent expansion of Company Secretary responsibilities, and overseeing almost all the core areas of the company, do you think some current responsibilities of the Company Secretary are irrelevant and should be considered to be removed? If so, what would those be?" 

    2. "How are we going to elevate ourselves by moving onto the next stage, after being qualified?"

    Visit the thread to view their interviews in full. You can also hear from some of our more experienced professionals and see how your views compare!

    The Governance Gateway is now open, so we look forward to seeing you there!​​​
