"Key principles of a new corporate governance model" event

9. 2. 2017
Corporate governance is again under the spotlight in the UK after recent scandals at Sports Direct and BHS. Corporate responsibility is a hot topic in policy circles, resulting in the parliamentary inquiry and the Government's recently published UK Corporate Governance Green Paper. Will Theresa May move forward with her bold promises of reform? What are the key principles for a new model? The event will take place next March 22. Organised by Cass Business School and Frank Bold.

The discussion will focus on three key topics: executive pay, fiduciary duties and stakeholder engagement.

Confirmed speakers include: 

  • Keynote: Iain Wright MP, Chair of the Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy Committee, UK Parliament 
  • Stefan Stern, Director of the High Pay Centre and FT columnist
  • Marilyn Croser, Director at CORE Coalition
  • George Dallas, Policy Director at the International Corporate Governance Network (ICGN)
  • Janet Williamson, Senior Policy Officer at Trades Union Congress (TUC)
  • Stephen Hockman QC, Head of Chambers at Six Pump Court Chambers
  • Colin Melvin, Chair of the Social Stock Exchange
  • Charles Cotton, Performance and Reward adviser at the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD)

The event will also include high-level speakers and attendees from relevant UK institutions and legislative bodies responsible for regulatory reform, as well as leading thinkers and practitioners involved in the global corporate governance debate.

The discussants will equally examine how recent calls for a change in various aspects of the corporate governance system are connected to a broader rethink of governance models.
