The most effective teams don’t happen by accident; they happen when individual contributors come together to pool their talents and work toward a common goal. They are the product of hard work, commitment – and, yes, sometimes a fair amount of struggle.
This award recognises company secretarial and governance teams who have demonstrated excellent collaboration, who have brought out the best from team members and developed effective and innovative ways of working.
