Media pack

Governance and Compliance is published by The Chartered Governance Institute UK & Ireland, and is the only magazine for company secretaries and governance professionals across  corporate, not-for-profit and public sectors. Our readers include governance professionals employed in a wide range of other roles - from managers and financial directors, to chief executives, directors and owner managers.

Our readers are often the focal point for independent advice about the conduct of business, governance and compliance. As such they have a powerful influence on a wide variety of business decisions, such as: 

  • The appointment of external professional services and advisers – auditors, legal and financial services, pensions, insurance, property, facilities and other business services;
  • The recruitment and remuneration of directors and senior executives;
  • Corporate structure.

The recent Governance and Compliance readership survey shows that the mean budget controlled by readers is around £750,000. It also highlights the fact that readers really value Governance and Compliance. More than half of the readership has been reading it for over eight years and the majority regard it as their prime source of invaluable industry news and practical advice. Around half of our readers keep the magazine for reference, revisiting it time and time again. The magazine is distributed to over 13,500 subscribers, ten times per year.


Our range of advertising opportunities allow you to reach a wider audience with responsibility for governance and compliance. In addition to display advertising in Governance and Compliance, advertisers can also access our website and jobs board: Jobs in Governance

We also offer other opportunities such as:

  • Sponsorship columns 
  • Thought leadership

We are also happy to work with you on bespoke packages, across media campaigns and initiatives.

Throughout the year, the Institute holds a variety of events, from full day conferences to member networking evenings. There are plenty of opportunities for sponsorship, or to exhibit at these events.
