  • TGE S2, ep.2 - Richard Taylor, Chief Executive, Lumi Global

    In episode 2, we speak to Richard Taylor who is Chief Executive at Lumi Global. Lumi Global has run over 2,500 virtual meetings this year and whilst circumstances made them a necessity, there are still issues to iron out. No one is better placed than Richard to look into the future of virtual meetings, what technology changes are still yet to come, how Regulators have assisted or hindered and how Governance Professionals can play a pivotal role in protecting the interests of issuers, investors and the wider stakeholders.

    For Governance Professionals this is an interview that goes to the heart of what we do.

  • CGI Webinar: 'The changing role of the governance professional post-Covid'

    [VIEW ON-DEMAND]
    On Thursday 8 October, we hosted our global webinar on 'The changing role of the governance professional post-Covid'. We were fortunate to hear from four governance professionals, on whether they thought the role has changed since the pandemic hit. Whilst the experiences were a little different in each case, all our panelists (and many attendees) agreed that it has created opportunity. It was also widely agreed that this is a pivotal moment for the profession in that if ever there is an extreme need for governance, that time is now. 

    If you were unable to join us live, or you were and you simply want to view it again, you can now access the recording on-demand here.

  • Welcome back!

    Now that the majority have returned to work or academia, we'd like to say Welcome Back! It's a little scary to think that we're nearing the end of Q3, and whilst we shan't dwell on it too long (because I think we've all had enough of it..), this global pandemic may have drastically disrupted 2020, however it has shown the intrinsic value and power of this community.

    We'd like to say 'thank you' to you, quite simply for keeping the conversation going at a time when this means of connection and source of information meant a great deal to many in a very isolated time. 

    We're fortunate to have still been able to deliver much in the way of content via this digital platform in the last few months, and we're heading into Q4 stronger than before. Whilst we can't reveal too much today, we encourage you to stay tuned as we've got some exciting things coming your way very soon!

    So, it's time to dust off the keyboard & set yourself up ready for great things as we approach the final quarter of 2020! Use this time to complete your eCommunity profile, have a look back through our webinars, webcasts & more, join the discussions happening over there to the left, but most importantly... watch this space

    We'll be in touch next week!
  • Summer Update

    The Chartered Governance Institute would like to take this moment to wish you all what is hopefully a relaxing Summer break, and that you ensure you dedicate some time to rest and catch up following a turbulent year so far.

    Remember that the eCommunity is a great platform to ask questions, build your professional network and enhance your knowledge, so please don’t hesitate to reach out or pop a thought or question in the discussion forum. And if you’ve got a spare moment or two and you’d like to broaden the mind in glorious sunshine, why not look back over our Thought-Leadership campaigns on 'Corporate Governance: beyond the listed company' or 'Enhancing individual director accountability', recap the Impact of Covid-19 on leading practitioners & academics, or prepare yourself for September with our Global webinar on the implementation of virtual AGMs.

    So don’t forget – we’re still here if you have any thoughts to share or want to look back through our numerous resources. But we look forward to picking up the conversation with you in September, where there’ll be plenty of content exclusives coming to the eCommunity.

    Wherever the Summer takes you, keep safe, keep well & keep writing.
