Governance Masterclasses

wigI enjoyed attending the recent the Whitehall and Industry Group (WIG) Governance Masterclass series, kindly hosted by PWC and Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer.

This culminated in a fascinating session on Working with Whitehall  in which Iain Ferguson, Lead NED at Defra shared his insights into ways of working with Ministers and building relationships.

The three sessions provided me with a wonderful opportunity to exchange views with other governance practitioners and share experiences across the public sector. The diverse perspectives amongst the group on the changing role of NEDs were thought provoking and generated much stimulating debate.
