Karl George, Managing Director at the governance forum is a thought leader and nationally established consultant in governance, with over twenty years combined experience in accountancy, business, and strategic development.

Karl works across the private, public and third sector, in which he specializes, delivering exceptional services in governance. He was the pioneer behind the Governance Assessment Process (GAP), a cross sector standard, endorsed by Sir Adrian Cadbury, previous chair of the Cadbury Committee who commissioned the 1992 Cadbury Report, a leading report that contributed to the UK Corporate Governance Code. The GAP has now been delivered to over 100 organisations nationally.

His passion to see the standard of governance improve across all sectors and for governance professionals to have a space to network and share best practice, led to him bringing together a number of leading professionals who collectively established the Association of Corporate Governance Practitioners (ACGP). With a growing membership, ACGP is the only professional body for cross sector governance practitioners and offers the opportunity for the sharing of good practice in governance, something that Karl sees as the backbone for the development of good governance.
