Patrick Sarch, a multi-dimensional talent, is widely trusted as an adviser to the boards of many UK and international listed companies, financial institutions, and investors. Patrick is featured in our Art and The City podcast, in which he reveals some fascinating personal experiences of bridging the gap between the worlds of art and business.

Penny Thomas, a truly outstanding individual, holds a prestigious title as a chartered governance professional. Penny was honoured with the ‘Governance Hot 100’ award, achieving the title of 2023 Board Influencer and has a wealth of experience in working with FTSE companies.

Maddie is also a prevalent social media influencer outside of her work.
