How can trust-based Integrated Thinking ensure long-term value for companies?

Alumni Webinar with Brett Hamilton, Barrie Jack and Jonathan Rens

Despite increased regulations and compliance with Integrated Reporting, recent corporate failures highlights the gap that still exists between the ideals of corporate governance and its outcomes. Merely ticking boxes on an annual basis is not sufficient. The goal should be to align corporate governance with the purpose, strategy and decision-making in the business.

Join Brett Hamilton, Barrie Jack and Jonathan Rens as they discuss how to move beyond the box-ticking connected with Integrated Reporting and how trust-based Integrated Thinking can provide a practical approach for corporate governance in any organisation.

Date:               Friday, 11 September 2020

Time:              10:00 CAT (GMT +2)
