Ahead - A community of government professionals

It was a great session and I learnt a lot from it! I have certainly shared the link with my clients and encouraged them to view it too.

Member feedback on a recent webcast

We are all professionals in our field.

We stay ahead of the curve on current developments and good practice. We ensure this knowledge is shared and embraced with the rest of the team through regular communication such as newsletters, workshops, briefing notes and seminars.

You’ll find the team out and about (or on a screen these days) at industry events, where we also regularly speak.

We work with The Chartered Governance Institute, Quoted Companies Alliance, Association of Investment Companies and many other organisations to support and lead positive change for everyone in our industry.

We consider whether and how to apply any new developments or practices to our individual clients to make sure they are relevant, proportionate and practical to suit their needs.

Four years ago, we started to share our structured technical training and insights with some of our clients. We called it ‘Ahead’, staying ahead of developments that affect us all.

Building on positive feedback, we expanded the reach and breadth of our programme to deliver new trends and ideas, discuss industry issues and connect with like-minded people.

Today, Ahead is a community of over 1,700 directors, company secretaries and governance professionals.

We host regular events throughout the year with a range of experts from our industry to support the professional and personal development of our teams and guests.
