I have worked with Lorraine Young for over seven years.  She has always provided the highest level of professional advice and support. Lorraine and her team have assisted us greatly in reforming our governance and in undertaking both an acquisition and an international merger.  I recommend her wholeheartedly for her professional knowledge and her customer service –she is always prepared to go the extra mile for her clients

David Woodgate | Chief Executive | Institute of Financial Accountants

We outsourced our company secretarial work to Lorraine Young and her team last summer for both the AIM listed plc and our UK subsidiaries. They provide us with full support for our board and committee meetings as well as the AGM and have been involved in several projects. We appreciate their proactive approach to working with us and they are very much part of our team. The changeover was extremely smooth and the ongoing help and support is excellent. I am really pleased with our decision to work with Lorraine.

Jog Dhody | Chief Financial Officer | Regenersis plc

When PHSC plc joined the Alternative Investment Market in 2005, we decided it was time to outsource our company secretarial requirements. The board appointed Lorraine Young to this role and it has proved one of our better decisions. Lorraine and her team have become an integral and reliable source of support since that time and I have no hesitation in recommending the services of her company to anybody seeking professional advice.

Stephen King | Group Chief Executive | PHSC plc

Lorraine and her team carried out a review of our board and committee governance, including updating terms of reference, policies and other documents. They are knowledgeable, reliable, professional and pragmatic. I would recommend them to any organisation.
