On September 29th 2022, we headed over to Guernsey to discuss all things governance with CGI Guernsey. Having attended a few great CGI conferences this year, we couldn’t wait to learn more about compliance on the island.

After a warm welcome from Teresa Le Couteur, we quickly got stuck into the talks of the day. One of the main themes of the conference was the impact of global changes in the environment. Knowing the implications of the recent IPCC report for businesses, we listened with interest to how the Bailiwick would respond to today’s key issues.

Governance is essential to every industry in the world. Listening to how professionals in Guernsey apply insights to business practices allowed us to develop a more comprehensive view of compliance. The conference was a great opportunity for us to think about the different forms these practices could take. 

We also discussed with attendees the increasing importance of ESG and ESG Reports. Here at Convene, we have always prioritised ESG and our newest ESG Reporting Tool is further evidence of that. If you would like to learn more about our product Convene ESG you can read about our early adopters here

Despite over 30 years’ experience in promoting governance, even we had some useful takeaways from the conference. Thank you to everyone involved! It was lovely to meet some old friends – as well as some potential new ones! We look forward to seeing you at the next conference!
