Knowledge sharing and networking events 


We host a programme of regular events, with a range of key speakers discussing the topics that matter most in your boardroom.  At our bespoke events, which adhere to the Chatham House Rule of anonymity, you can network and share experiences in a safe environment.

Annual forum

Up to 100 participants have the opportunity to network with peers and speakers at our annual event and hear from industry experts on topics that matter most in the boardroom. In recent years we’ve heard about the steps organisations could and should be taking to prevent financial crime, how companies are addressing the gender pay gap and what firms are doing to really put customers at the heart of their business. In addition to our own regulatory, conduct and culture experts, speakers have included specialists from parliament, the regulator and industry.

The emphasis we place on ensuring presentations pick up on the issues of most importance to boards is borne out in the feedback:

“Excellent use of my time.  Great speakers.  I was engaged for the entire afternoon.  Real life practical examples which have already been of good use in the board room.”

“Perfect timing. Excellent topics.”

“Short, sharp focused and topical sessions.”

The 2018 annual forum discussed some of the most impactful topics in regulated industries.

Peer Discussion Groups

Peer Discussion Groups (PDGs) consist of six to eight non-executive directors, company secretaries and legal counsel, meeting and, over the course of a couple of hours, discussing topics of mutual interest under the Chatham House rule of confidentiality.

Huntswood’s Director of Non-executive Engagement chairs the sessions, accompanied by one or two subject matter experts (SMEs) on the topics under discussion. SMEs consist of Huntswood’s own regulatory, conduct risk, culture and digital specialists alongside members of our Financial Crime and Payments Advisory Panel and Regulatory Conduct Advisory Panel. Panels bring extensive, senior-level experience to support both our financial crime, fraud & payments and regulatory & business assurance teams in delivering market-leading services to clients.

PDG topics reflect the ‘big’ issues impacting boards and, in recent times, have covered senior managers and certification regime (SM&CR), culture, fraud and financial crime, payments, vulnerable customers and pensions.
