Governance Professional of the Year

2020 Winner

Paul Denton, Deputy Company Secretary, North West Anglia NHS Foundation Trust

A valued team member undertaking a very challenging role in what is a particularly difficult time for the sector in which he works, Paul is our winner in this category with a strong nomination backed up by especially strong testimonials.

Paul is passionate about what he does, “lives and breathes” governance and offers both practical and emotional support to others. Particularly noteworthy was his work to develop the understanding and management of risk, including his efforts to raise awareness that responsibility for risk goes far beyond the board. He is in many ways a credit to the profession.
