Corporate Governance and Business Conference (CGBC)
19th & 20th July 2012
Overview of the Conference
The recent financial crisis has created an impression, rightly or wrongly, of a wholesale failure in corporate governance. Considerable debate has ensued and various practitioners, policy makers and theorists have endeavoured to discover whether this is symptomatic of broader problems or the result of inadequacies in the regulation structure of the financial system. All who wrestle with this issue are aware of the need to encourage high standards of corporate governance without endangering entrepreneurialism, innovation and wealth creation. This whole issue has thrown into sharp relief the dialogue (or lack of it) between boards and shareholders. There is clearly no room for complacency in the areas of strategy and value-creation. Companies worldwide are now suffering a whole raft of problems many of which stem from liquidity and solvency in the global banking system.
Increasingly the issue of Corporate Governance is one that warrants attention. From the American Bar Association’s Model Business Corporation Act to the Turnbull Guidance (2005) considerable momentum has been building, a momentum added to considerably by the Enron debacle. The conference seeks to elucidate a wealth of issues related not just to Corporate Governance, but also business management and general business ethics. Contributions should therefore be of interest to scholars, practitioners and researchers in management in both developed and developing countries targeting a worldwide readership.
