Martin Chalker, International Students House Chief Executive, Told Us

“After careful consideration of five external company secretarial service providers, we felt confident in choosing Bridgehouse Company Secretaries due to the scope
of services offered and their specialist nature. This has freed our team up from the cumbersome board meeting tasks, especially considering we have two boards
as well as 32 committee meetings per year. With Bridgehouse’s support, we’ve looked at reducing the amount of committees
and increasing efficiency of our meetings. We recently had an excellent annual review, and really want to thank Ibi and Andrea for all of their support over the past year and look forward to continuing our work together”.
