The fundamentals of good corporate governance together should give assurance – with accountability, probity and transparency. This training course gives insight and intelligence on what makes governance effective through the medium of board papers.

GGI Academy offers a look into the importance of well-structured and well-written board papers. The course includes:

  • The fundamentals of corporate governance

  • An overview of board tasks

  • Simple writing rules including plain English

  • How to present the paper to board

This session can be extended and tailored to your organisation’s needs by either discussing current papers, considering how to tackle a burning issue or using exercises to put into practice lessons learnt during the session.

I am extremely proud of the changes we’ve made to our governance processes. We knew we needed to update our approach and reshape the board to embrace different backgrounds and viewpoints – both from inside and outside the game – to help us make good decisions. What we were less clear on was exactly what needed to change and how to change it.

With their broad perspective on governance across many sectors and regions, the GGI team were the perfect partners for this exercise. Their input was invaluable, helping us to find a way through the complicated process of bringing our governance up to date and ensuring we’re in the best possible shape to deliver our central mission of raising standards at all levels and attracting more players and spectators to this wonderful sport.

There is a lack of joining up at a national level. Departments don’t value other parts of the sector
