On Wednesday, November 9, over 400 industry professionals in the governance, risk and compliance world will gather to celebrate the best of the best at Corporate Secretary’s annual Corporate Governance Awards.
For our awards, individuals and companies have the opportunity to nominate themselves or others, free of charge, for aspects of GRC. More information about the categories, criteria, and judging process can be found below.
Join us to meet the companies that are consistently raising the bar and pushing the profession forward through innovation.
In March 2022, we held our first in-person awards ceremony in three years! View the highlights below to see what you can expect at the Corporate Governance Awards in November…
For our awards, individuals and companies are given the opportunity to submit written entries, free of charge, to be put forward to a panel of expert judges made up of corporate governance professionals and Corporate Secretary editorial team members.
We are now accepting entries for the 2022 awards! Please click here to access the entry form. The deadline for submissions is midnight (ET) on Friday, July 22.
If you have any questions that are not answered in the FAQ section on the entry form, please contact [email protected] or call +44 (0)20 8004 5339.
Please note that categories are subject to change based on the final number of entries received. Some categories may be split by cap size.
The judging process consists of three simple phases:
Phase one: Once the entry deadline has passed, the Corporate Secretary editorial team reviews all submissions and produces the short list
Phase two: The short-listed entries are shared with an independent judging panel made up of industry experts. The judges review each short-listed entry and select their top two picks per category
Phase three: The judges come together to discuss, debate and select the final list of winners who will go on to win an award
The judges’ votes are not made public, but their comments may be published in articles or reports after the event. Judges are not required to make comments against every submission.
Market cap definition
"As was said by many, compliance is a critical function in today’s corporate world. Yet, those engaged in that effort receive insufficient attention. Corporate Secretary, generally, and this event in particular, shine appropriate light on not only the substance of ethics, compliance and good governance, but also put faces to the names who lead in this field."
"The flow and format of the event were excellent!"
"I enjoyed the Corporate Governance Awards very much. Thank you for the invitation. It was a lot of fun and very well organized. Congratulations!"
"It is important that the good work done by many members of the corporate governance community be highlighted, and I particularly appreciate the opportunity for recognition offered to smaller companies and rising stars."
"The awards are external validation for the work being done by the governance groups within companies whose work might go unseen by the average employee. Having a physical trophy is a good representation of the hard work of those teams"
"A great production!"
