Our 21st BIRTHDAY
All the team at Governance Publishing are delighted to announce our 21st birthday!
On 31st May 2000, Governance Publishing was incorporated, and since then it's been our purpose to provide incisive and authoritative informed opinion on one of today’s most critical corporate issues. We are proud that only Governance brings you such a rich source of information on developments in the international arena of corporate governance on a monthly basis.
We would like to express our huge thanks to all our Advisory Board members and other thought leaders who have so generously shared their expertise over the years.
We look forward to helping to keep the discussion going in years to come.

It’s unofficial but important role in educating and informing key decision makers by covering such a comprehensive and varied range of topics in every edition including emerging trends and international best practice make it a true leader in its field but often also ahead of its time. Articles are regularly thought provoking as well as making a very real contribution to the debate on the best way forward to improve governance and across all sectors too. There is always something of interest to discover or discover anew in any edition of this highly relevant specialist publication.
Congratulations to Lesley and the team on your twenty-first anniversary and best wishes for the future. Given the various crises in governance affecting us all the issues covered by the journal have never been more important to discuss, debate and act upon.”

“Congratulations to Governance Publishing on surviving for 21 years…
Over that period of time there have been huge changes in the Governance field including:
1) The increased recognition of the importance of culture and values
2) Board composition (including board diversity), independent directors and risk management - 21 years ago the Higgs report had not been published
3) Stewardship issues
4) ESG - 21 years ago corporate reporting initiatives integrating ESG had not yet occurred
5) Scandals or crises - we had not experienced the many corporate governance scandals or the Global Financial crisis
The list goes on and on. In all of the above cases Governance Publishing have provided an expert commentary on all of these changes which I have found to be invaluable.
I wish Governance Publishing continued success in the coming decades!"
