HM Lord-Lieutenant of Northamptonshire James Saunders Watson invites all Northamptoshire Chamber members to the 3rd Lord-Lieutenant’s Leaders’ Forum on The Future of the Corportation - Principles for Purposeful Business. Keynote Speaker: Professor Colin Mayer CBE of Oxford Said Business School.
Prof. Colin Mayer CBE (pictured here) of Oxford Said Business School led the British Academy inquiry into ‘The Future of the Corporation’, aiming to rebuild trust between business and society.
The programme concluded that a shift is needed away from the notion that business should focus on maximising returns to shareholders, and developed principles to bring about trustworthy business. The principles cover law, regulation, ownership, governance, measurement, performance, financing & investment, with ‘purpose’ as the core.
In this 3rd Lord-Lieutenant’s Leaders’ Forum, the much in demand Professor Mayer will be talking about the eight principles, and how purposeful business can help solve some of the major social & environmental challenges facing society - including climate change, inequality, declining trust and technological disruption.
