Governance guidance

Governance Guidance

Ad hoc informal mentoring, connecting you with experienced members willing to share valuable insights and guidance with new professionals.

Sometimes we need a point of contact with whom we can check in. Someone who can give an insight or some pointers. This is not designed to be formal mentoring but rather an opportunity to connect on an ad hoc basis to get some…as we say...guidance. Experienced members will give their time…making this a valuable feature of The Gateway.


In a new career it is all about filling the mind with new information, sometimes as fast as possible.  Join The Governance Gateway and soak up the numerous opportunities available.  Absorb as much as you can.  Get up to speed fast.  The Governance Gateway community is there solely for you…  Take advantage of what is has to offer.


There is nothing gained unless you engage. Of course access the reference material in your own time and pace. But make the most of your time and engage with others and with what The Governance Gateway has to offer.  Learning is two-fold; feel free to browse and utilise the resources, but have the courage to engage with others keen to share their thoughts and expertise.


The Governance Gateway community is there to help you develop into a governance professional as quickly as possible.  The community will help you develop your technical skills and interpersonal skills through knowledge sharing and participation.  With development comes expertise and with expertise comes confidence. Seize the opportunity and focus your professional development.
