Tomorrow's Company, an important think tank in the U.K., has been for some time exploring the most appropriate corporate form for both business and society. This spring, it is hosting discussions on this subject by our webcast speaker, Professor Colin Mayer from Oxford. Prof. Mayer’s work provides a lucid and insightful account of the role of the corporation in modern society and explains why its problems are growing. Based on decades of analysis and research, he discusses his new approach to thinking about the firm which not only stops it destroying us but turns it into the means of protecting our environment, addressing social problems, and creating new sources of entrepreneurship and innovation. He also sets out an agenda for converting the company into a twenty-first century organization that we value and trust. Guy R. Jubb, Head of Governance & Stewardship, Standard Life Investments Ltd. provides the perspective of the future model of the corporation as seen through the vantage point of a major global institutional investor.
Topics to be covered:
- Why has the corporation, as an institution of trust in our society, fallen on hard times?
- Where has the corporate model as we know it gone wrong?
- How should companies work to build trust while creating shareholder value and achieving a positive sustainable force for society?
- What should be included in a precise and practical set of policies for fixing the corporation?

Chairmen, Executive Directors, CEOs, Members of Boards of Directors, Chief Legal Counsel, Corporate Secretaries, Corporate Governance Officers, Secretaries to Boards of Directors, Risk Officers, Human Relations Executives, Investor Relations Executives, Sustainability Executives, Institutional Investors
