Here is some feedback from two of the events attended by a few members of the last programme:
Speakers included Christine Hamilton, wife of Nigel Hamilton- former MP, Rob Brown and Morris Goodman-internationally known as 'The Miracle Man'.
"Overall I had an amazing day and got to meet a lot of very inspirational men and woman who have taught me that there is nothing that you want that you can't have with the right attitude. I thank the corporate governance scheme for giving me the opportunity to attend this event and look forward to many more alike."
Event hosted by Lucy Kite, ITV Weather Presenter
"...an evening of professional networking, fine dining and topical conversations hosted by ITV’s central tonight, very own Lucy Kite. The special guest speaker at the event was David Smith the economic editor of the Sunday Times. The whole event was beneficial as I was able to interact, ask questions and contribute to the discussions. I feel the event linked to governance as it looked at issues globally. Attending this event gave me an excellent opportunity to network and connect with accountancy professionals and the local businesses community."
