We have helped a number of company secretaries by coaching and mentoring them in the practical performance of their roles, suggesting different ways of tackling issues (and sometimes people) and providing practical help. We are often able to put clients in touch with trusted external contacts or peers.

For senior company secretaries, this could involve reviewing departmental structures and resource levels, and how to bring about change and adopt best practice.

Those taking on the group company secretary’s role for the first time have a particular need in this area, and it can also be helpful where company secretaries simply want to find out how things are done in other company secretariats.

It is not uncommon for these coaching sessions to extend to discussions (on a highly confidential basis) about career planning and the different options available.
