Member Testimonials

I can't recommend Leading Governance highly enough. They delivered an excellent and informative session for our trustees, tailoring the material to the issues that mattered most to our charity. Our governance is now stronger than it's ever been!
Dr. Lindsay Cordery-Bruce, The Wallich
Working with Leading Governance was really easy. The process and communications were so clear, relevant and helpful, the insights and advice have strengthened our governance and helped set us on a path to continue improving.
Simon Gale, Justlife
We were delighted with the professional support from Joy Allen. Her experience with a wide range of boards enabled a very useful blend of support and challenge to our top team. The output of a clear vision and values has been really useful to our company, and their application through the resulting performance management framework has added value in terms of business success
Howard Hastings, Hastings Hotels
Leading Governance reviewed our governance documents and provided governance training to our Board and Senior Leadership Team. The expertise and advice provided was extremely valuable and thorough and the training has given us much food for thought when it comes to improving our approach to governance. We would certainly be happy to work with Leading Governance again in future.
Laura Carter, Friends of the Earth
A few months ago I approached Joy about a Board Development Workshop for our Trustees. With lots of new people and changes on our Board, ambitious new strategy and new Chair we felt we needed a bit of a reset and clear understanding of Trusteeship in the 21st Century. Joy delivered this and so much more, her session was motivating, very knowledgeable and filled with practical examples.
Katie Antill, Alzheimer's and Dementia Support Services
Joy created a safe space and facilitated our thinking about our governance, to challenge ourselves in areas we wanted to do better and gave us practical ideas and advice to support changes that we wanted to make. Her passion, impressive knowledge and understanding of the topic alongside her no-nonsense approach is great at cutting through to what’s needed will be of benefit to any charity who really want to do good governance. Our Trustees really enjoyed working with her and learned a lot.
