  • 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!​​​
