What Does Corporate Governance Reform Mean for Private Businesses?
With James Wates CBE, Chair, Coalition Group on Large Private Company Corporate Governance
Tuesday 23rd October, 9-10am, Committee Room 20
How businesses are run, and the impact they have on their wider community, has been a topic of national debate over the past few years.
Following the BEIS consultation on corporate governance last year the government introduced a package of reforms, including legislation requiring some private companies to provide more information on how their business is run.
As part of the package of reforms James Wates was invited by the Secretary of State for Business Energy and Industrial Strategy to lead a coalition group to prepare corporate governance principles for large private companies.
This session will offer you an opportunity to learn more about those principles, how they will be applied and how they may change business behaviour. You will also find out more about the thinking behind the approach that has been taken, and have the opportunity to ask questions to those who have been involved in the process. The meeting will also be the AGM for the APPG.
Speakers will include:
- James Wates CBE, Chair of coalition developing private company Principles
- Elizabeth Bagger, Institute for Family Business
The Principles, which have recently been publically consulted on, cover the following areas – Company Purpose, Board Composition, Responsibilities, Opportunity and Risk, Remuneration and Stakeholders. You can read more about the Principles here.
The meeting will take place on Tuesday 23rd October from 9-10am in Committee Room 20, Palace of Westminster, London, SW1A 0AA. Entry will be via the Cromwell Green Entrance.
If you would like to attend, please RSVP to email@example.com.
This will also be the AGM for the APPG for Family Business.
