The New Business as Usual: Leading for the Long-Term

To enable the transition to a sustainable economy we need to encourage a longer-term focus in business and investment decision-making. Most companies are driven by the short-termism of the markets and thus make short-term decisions that often go against the long-term viability of the company. Should companies really exist to help investors speculate and make lots of money? Is this really the purpose of business in society? If so, then the company is really just enslaved to their investors which ultimately erodes the business in the long-term. But what about customers? Employees? And communities? Business leaders are responsible for many stakeholders, not only shareholders. In this interactive discussion Sue Garrard and Charles Wookey will reveal the type of leadership that will take us towards a sustainable economy that delivers prosperity for all.
