We headed west for our first CPD event of the year. Thaks so much to Anna Holland and her colleagues in FCS Corporate Services for being such wonderful hosts. An excellent informative evening with some very useful networking included.


We have some excellent in person training events on Minute taking in May and September and an Introduction to the Role of the Company Secretary later this year in October.

Becoming a Company Secretary / Governance Professional

Should you have any queries in respect of qualifying as a Company Secretary or Governance Professional or a more general query in respect of the Irish Region, please contact our Business Development Manager, Conn Cleary at ccleary@cgi.org.uk.


We offer a service for members and students where they can receive weekly emails highlighting the latest vacancies for company secretaries and governance professionals.

Sunday Business Post

On the 31st March I gave an interview to the Sunday Business Post where I highlighted the shortage in Governance professionals and more importantly the skill set which is unique and needed in board rooms. Please see the full article here.


There have been a number of blogs posted over the last few months on topics relevant to Company Secretaries.  These can be accessed at the following link here.
