About the event

The Corporate Secretary Think Tank – Best Practices is an invitation-only event exclusively for GRC professionals. It is free to attend and our unique format enables participants to network extensively, discuss, debate and dissect best practices and topical issues in the corporate governance world.

  • Listen as past winners and current nominees of the Corporate Governance Awards discuss in detail their successful practices  
  • Learn key take-aways that you can implement immediately in your own practice
  • Network with the best of the best in GRC

What makes our format so unique?
It is far removed from the traditional conference set-up as the event consists of a series of panel sessions followed by roundtable discussions on select GRC issues. These interactive sessions are broken up by short, snappy briefings from top-rated corporate governance professionals. All discussions are confidential and none of the participants’ comments are attributed. This allows attendees to talk freely and have frank, open discussions.
