Simon Osborne, former Chief Executive of the Institute, led a panel discussion on the latest research findings on millennial perspectives on governance.
This was followed with a discussion on the future of the branch, which will include the following formal proposals to be put forward:
Date: Thursday 12 July 2018
David Venus, International President, and Peter Swabey, Research and Policy Director, updated you on the introduction of the new qualifying programme syllabus, affiliated membership and the new designation of chartered governance professional. They also sought your views on the International Council proposals to build on these innovations, including a new name for the Institute. You can read more about the proposals here.
Peter then took you through the key findings and recommendations from the 'Conflict and Tension in the Boardroom' report. The report offers a set of principles to guide boardroom practice, alongside insights that chairmen, directors and company secretaries can use to make their boardrooms places of collaboration, as well as of challenge and independence.
Date: Tuesday 12 September 2017
Peter Swabey FCG, Policy and Research Director, and John Heaton FCG, President of the UK, Republic of Ireland and Associated Territories division, outlined the strategic drivers for the proposed changes, and what they would mean for you. They will also answer any questions that you have and look forward to hearing your views on these issues.

Insurance for Directors and Officers
John McLaren-Stewart, Managing Director of AT&A Business Insurance Brokers, will discuss the importance of directors and officer insurance and related corporate governance issues.
John will also provide a general overview of the support an insurance policy provides, examples of the types of claims he has dealt with and the links to other company risks such as cyber crime.
Making Tax Digital
David Fairbank, Manager of the Business Services department at Ensors Chartered Accountants, will be providing an insight into the introduction of Making Tax Digital (MTD). This will be one of the most significant changes to the way we deal with HMRC since the introduction of Self-Assessment, and David will discuss its impact on businesses.
A full understanding will be vital as although the government has recently announced it has taken the MTD reforms out of the current Finance Bill, they are fully expected to go back in once the election is completed.
Date: Thursday 23 March 2017
