The Proposed Reforms to Audit and Corporate Governance

Dan Thomas, Chief UK Business Correspondent, Financial Times with Sir Jonathan Thompson, Chief Executive Officer, Financial Reporting Council

After the recent publication of the UK white paper on audit and corporate governance reforms, the FT invited Sir Jon Thompson, chief executive of the Financial Reporting Council, to share his thoughts on issues including the reform of the FRC, a UK version of Sarbanes-Oxley, the future of the Big Four accounting firms and why London remains a great place to raise capital.

Navigating the changing relationship between boards and executives

An exclusive peer to peer networking event hosted by Patrick Dunne, Chair, board member and author of award-winning book, Boards.

The relationship between the Chair and the CEO is perhaps the most critical individual relationship on a board and if there is conflict or disagreement between them that has an inevitable impact on the rest of the board members, the executive team and ultimately on the business.

At this exclusive 'Chatham House style’ discussion, board members were presented with a dilemma based on a genuine, real-life situation where the Chair and the CEO are in conflict. In small groups, they discussed the situation, the issues it raises for the board and the best solution to resolve.
