MindLeap translates complicated board issues – keeping it simple and making it real!

By interpreting the intricate structure and culture of the boardroom, those who will benefit are anyone who want to up their game in the boardroom: corporate governance experts supporting the board; shareholders; individuals who are exploring a non-exec directorship career; external advisors; and any other stakeholders.

MindLeap achieves this by promoting collaboration, best practice and thought leadership initiatives in corporate governance amongst the wider stakeholder community.

About us

Caroline Evans

Caroline Evans FCIS is the founder of MindLeap. Her ambition is to facilitate and promote the benefits and developments of corporate governance in all of its forms. Diverse, mutually supportive networking is pivotal to Caroline. She loves making relationships work and believes that serendipity is the secret of her success.

Before establishing MindLeap, Caroline was a Director of Beament Leslie Thomas (BLT), where initially she grew the Management Consultancy recruitment desk and latterly became Head of the Company Secretarial practice under the CSS brand.

Over the last few years Caroline has tracked the rise of the corporate governance agenda and a secretariat that is properly valued and respected by the board. Caroline firmly believes that it's not just about the process, but also the tone that should be set from the top down.


MindLeap collaborates on projects by harnessing connections across the corporate governance platform.
