Areas we can help
Our dedicated Governance experts can work with you across any or all of the areas of Governance Operations to support and optimise the Secretariat function.
We can help you build bespoke corporate governance frameworks, subsidiary governance frameworks, and a secretariat operating model that is designed around the needs of your stakeholders.
We help you design ways to centralise and manage the extensive corporate knowledge handled by the Secretariat team, significantly reducing the time taken up dealing with repetitive queries.
We work with you to improve the way you collaborate together; building an understanding of each other's strengths, weaknesses and preferred ways of working around a shared vision aligned to your organisation’s strategy, culture and values.
We help you create a strategic plan for the secretariat function that looks at the organisational strategy, culture and values and maps resources, budgets and development opportunities into an agreed timeline and action plan.
We help plan and execute major corporate activities such as AGMs, Annual Accounts or Corporate Transactions efficiently and effectively, as well as assisting with significant change programmes such as the introduction of new technology or operating models.
Risk & Regulation Management
As well as building risk management frameworks, we can help you manage regulatory actions relating to Corporate Governance, arising out of PRA/FCA Governance Reviews, s166 Reports or PSM letters.
Process & Technology
Design and implement more efficient and effective processes, including Directors Appointment and Induction, Board Information Management and Planning, and Subsidiary oversight and assurance.
We build effective data analytics suites – giving you valuable insights into how the Secretariat team is functioning and delivering to its stakeholders. This can help you manage budgets, manage risk and deliver better outcomes to your stakeholders.
We can help you put in place budget management processes, or scope out a particularly tricky budget, looking at ways to maximise available resources and minimise unnecessary spend.
We help you build and manage vendor relationships, to ensure that you are maximising value from the relationships. We also help run tender processes for both services and solutions.
