How we're governed
How we are governed

We play a unique role; through our thought-leadership, partnership approach, and a heritage based on trust we have the permission to connect in ways that no-one else can, collaborating and inspiring through a truly extensive and highly influential network, where we both provoke and lead healthy debate.
