Date Tuesday, November 22, 2016
Time 17:30 - 20:00
Speaker(s) Professor Didier Cossin
IMD Professor of Finance and Governance

Didier Cossin is the founder and director of the IMD Global Board Center and Professor of Finance and Governance at IMD.  He directs High Performance Boards, a program for supervisory board members and chairpersons, and is co-author with Ong Boon Hwee of the recently released book Inspiring Stewardship.   In his words:

The deep economic and geopolitical malaise we continue to witness is eroding the global ability to create wealth, with a slide toward fragmentation and insularity.  Business can be a key player in creating wealth for all for the long-term.  This is the heart of stewardship. Stewardship has three requirements.  First, the ability of chief executives, company owners, boards, and management to lead with impact, exercising leadership which has a clear vision and values, empowering and infusing organizational actors with a sense of purpose; second, in recognizing that wealth creation cannot occur in a vacuum, but relies on relationships with an ecosystem of actors, stewardship acknowledges the essential importance of reinforcing societal well-being and, third, a willingness to sacrifice what is profitable today for what is beneficial in the long-term is essential in safeguarding the future.  

Generously hosted by CMS at their London headquarters, Professor Cossin's talk will be followed by a reception with canapes.
