THE FLUIDROCK STORY


The FluidRock Governance Group (Pty) Ltd (“FluidRock”) is the leading independent governance, training, advisory and company secretarial services provider powered by some of the most well-known and experienced professionals in the industry. When a group of likeminded, passionate individuals combine their respective strengths and skills in the furtherance of a dream to make a significant impact, the result can only be a winning formula.

FluidRock provides a holistic suite of services in a flexible and client-centric manner to ensure the relevant needs of every organisation and its board (governing body), executives and stakeholders are met. Each of the four divisions is headed up by an industry expert with many years’ experience supported by a team of passionate and energetic individuals.

The common thread that binds the FluidRock team together is a vision and passion for improving corporate governance and compliance practices in organisations with a professional and pragmatic approach.



OUR DREAM

A society fuelled by ethical and well-governed corporate citizens.

OUR MISSION

We are the independent expert enablers of organisations to be ethical and well-governed corporate citizens.

OUR NAME

The team adopted the name "FluidRock" as it comprised the two elements the founders believed to be critical in the successful approach to business in the governance environment, the "Fluid" element and the "Rock" element.

FLUID

The "Fluid" element symbolises a way of operating in an enabling manner in a regulated environment whilst being business-minded and pragmatic. In addition, the "Fluid" element encapsulates the type of service provider the team envisions - a flexible, virtual organisation that gives our team the freedom to live and work from their ideal space so as to optimise their service in the most cost-effective manner.

ROCK

The world of governance is synonymous with the "Rock" element being the solid foundation of legislation and regulations. Yet, the "Rock" element also depicts the type of relationships that FluidRock nurtures with its clients - longlasting relationships that will stand the test of time, trials and tribulations and changing environments.
