The twentieth annual conference should be recorded in the annals of the International Corporate Governance Network as being a successful conference. From small beginnings twenty years ago, when 49 hardy souls met, the ICGN annual conference has grown ten-fold. Nearly 500 delegates assembled (from close to 50 countries) at the Guildhall in London to listen, share and, importantly, to exchange experiences.
Was the conference worthwhile? If the quality of the insight, discussions and relationships are any indication, the answer must be 'yes'! Consequently, the 21st edition is already marked my diary.
Thoughts on corporate governance, strategy and effective board practice; our place in the world; and, other things that catch my attention.
