This years awards are sponsored by headline sponsor Nasdaq Boardvantage

On the night

Join us from the comfort of your own home!

Each year, we come together in The Chartered Governance Institute UK & Ireland Awards and celebrate excellence in the delivery and oversight of governance and our nominees reflect the very best achievements from across the governance community.

The Awards ceremony is usually a black tie affair. However, this year we’re taking a socially distanced approach and will be hosting the awards virtually. We look forward to celebrating with our friends, colleagues, peers, judges, sponsors and partners in recognising the very best the profession has to offer. This event is free to attend.

Take part in the fun, it’ll be…fascinating!

Given the 5.30 timeslot, dress code will be “come as you are”.  But, to add a little glamour and fun, we’d like you to wear an extravagant headpiece – you can choose how you interpret this, from top hats and tiaras, to night caps and crazy fascinators – show your personality while celebrating excellence in governance.

Speaking of flair…

In the run up to the event, we’re asking the governance community to design a cocktail with a cosec/governance inspired name, and we’ll be asking you to vote on your favorite. We’ve already seen some clever suggestions on our social media channels, so now we invite you to send your cocktail name and recipe to before 2 November. Voting will start on 4 November. The best submission will receive a copy of the Company Secretary's Checklists, on us!

Throughout the evening we will be toasting all of the shortlisted nominees and celebrating excellence in governance. So whether you’re drinking a glass of fizz, a virgin daiquiri or the winning cocktail of the night, make sure you’re ready to raise a glass.
