The annual International Governance Workshop, hosted by the Toulouse Business School, starts tomorrow in Barcelona. Although only in its second year, this conference is an important gathering because it has attracted many of the world's leading corporate governance and board researchers. To be in the same room as these people, to hear them present and debate the results of emergent research is truly an honour. In contrast to the scale of the ICGN annual conference, the IGW is more intimate and more focussed. However, the programme of topics to be explored is no less significant.
Session summaries will be posted here, as usual, so you can keep up to date. My paper will be delivered on Thursday afternoon.
Thoughts on corporate governance, strategy and effective board practice; our place in the world; and, other things that catch my attention.
