Join us to celebrate and mark the launch of the new ICAEW Corporate Governance Group. This new Group will lead the discussion on the best practice in corporate governance. The Cadbury Report was published 25 years ago, setting the standards for corporate governance with the development of the Code with ‘comply or explain’ as its central principle.
The theme for this event is trust. In recent years, we can see that trust has been eroded between individuals, business and society. Political debate has seen polarised views coming to the fore, with moderates being sidelined and truth being challenged.
How do we define the nature of trust between business and the societies to which they belong, and how do we improve that trust? The failure of the social contract has been highlighted by the current government as a challenge that it intends to address through changes in corporate governance structures: executive pay; strengthening the employee, customer and supplier voice; and corporate governance in the UK’s largest privately-held businesses.
Attend this important event to join in the discussion on the challenge of increasing and retaining trust.
Our speakers are:
• Robert Phillips, Jericho Chambers• Trevor Phillips OBE, President of the John Lewis Partnership Council• Lord (Daniel) Finkelstein OBE, Associate Editor, The Times• Angela Knight CBE, Chair of the Office of Tax Simplification and formerly British Bankers’ Association
Our chairman for this launch event is Michael Izza, Chief Executive of ICAEW.
Registration will take place from 17.30 with the panel starting at around 18.00. Networking will be from 19.30 onwards with drinks and light refreshments provided. Proceedings will come to a close at around 21:00.
