‘Governance of a professional service firm in the modern era’
This event will be held under the Chatham House Rule.
To quote the obvious “one size does not fit all” comes to life in this representation of governance in a professional services firm. Being able to understand the various governance models and how they can lead to success especially in the case of Tompkins Wake is a focus of this presentation and should promote wider thinking amongst the attendees.
