Join Us

Governance 2021, the must attend event for governance professionals around the globe is hosted by The Chartered Governance Institute’s and is scheduled to take place virtually on 5–7 July 2021.

Entitled “The Next Chapter”, this year we’re going virtual with two days' worth of keynote addresses, panel sessions and workshops spread across a three--day programme, as well as ample time for you to network with your peers. We’ll be taking stock of the state of the governance landscape following the challenges of the last twelve months, and exploring what’s coming up on the governance horizon.

We have an incredible line-up of speakers this year including:  Sir Jonathan Thompson, CEO of the Financial Reporting Council; Ian Peters MBE, Director of the Institute of Business Ethics; Mediator, speaker and author Jane Gunn; Ben Page, Chief Executive at Ipsos MORI; Alex Edmans, Professor of Finance at London Business School and a speaker from PwC. We’ll be unveiling more speakers in the weeks to come.

This year’s packed agenda will be unveiled shortly.  To give you a taster, here are some of the issues to be discussed:

  • How has corporate culture changed over the past 12 months and the impact this may have as we enter the ‘new norm’?
  • What are the emerging risks which boards need to consider?
  • How will your organisation continue to support their employees' wellbeing as we return to the office and the ‘new norm’
  • What are the recuring pitfalls and biases when it comes to succession planning?
  • Do you have the skills needed to exercising judgement in the ‘virtual’ boardroom?
  • Is your boardroom ready to embrace Artificial Intelligence?

You will also be hearing about some of the latest developments in regulation, reflecting on the future of work and hearing about the latest developments in share plans. PLUS some recent winners of the Institute’s Awards will be sharing their success stories.
