Annual Parliamentary Reception

18th November 2014 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm

Business success has never been more important – 37 of the world’s largest economies are corporations. The global market place is on the threshold of the next wave of technological innovation. Taking the best possible decisions in the face of increasing volatility, complexity, uncertainty and ambiguity, is tough but vital.

Being able to excel in telling your value creation story will therefore be an increasing source of competitive advantage.

This event celebrates our recent publication: Tomorrow’s Business Success: Using Integrated Reporting to help create value and effectively tell the full story. Integrated Reporting offers a new opportunity and the best possible way now available to tell the value creation story – by drawing on existing information to succinctly bring together insights and information from across the business for investors and others.

The guide lays out the framework of and how it best helps chairmen, CEOs, CFOs and other members of boards and executive committees to support leaders in achieving business success.

The Crown Estate is widely recognised for its work in . It has been developing and refining its approach to implementing over three years. All parts of the business are reflected in and involved in the production of the integrated report. Sustainability is woven into the fabric of its business and is a driving factor behind the company’s strategy and long-term commercial success.

In this celebratory event we will also be sharing key conclusions from Valuing your Talent, a CIMA and CIPD research programme designed to help give employers a clearer understanding of, and common means of describing, the way in which people impact the performance of their organisation, and from Tomorrow’s Relationships, a guide produced in collaboration with CIMA, the CIPD, KPMG, and Linklaters that seeks to recognise the full value of relationships and provides a practical resource for boards and senior management teams to help them map and understand the relationships of their business.

Alison Nimmo CBE is Chief Executive of The Crown Estate, an independent commercial business created by Act of Parliament that returns 100% of its annual revenue profits to the UK Treasury. With a capital value of over £9 billion, the business’s assets range from prime real estate in London’s West End, to around 50% of the UK’s foreshore and almost the entire seabed around the UK, to farmland and forestry. Last year it returned over £267 million to the Treasury (in the last 10 years in excess of £2 billion returned) for the benefit of the nation – though the business creates significant value beyond financial return. Alison has been listed in both Radio Four Woman’s Hour’s Power 100, the Evening Standard’s Power 1000 lists and ranked number one in Property Week’s list of the 100 Most Influential Women in Property. Previously Director of Design and Regeneration at the Olympic Delivery Authority, for five years she led on the overall design, planning and early delivery of most of the venues and the parklands for London’s Olympic Park. She was also the lead on sustainability and legacy for the multi-award winning Olympic Park. Alison is a chartered surveyor and town planner by training and was awarded a CBE for services to urban regeneration in 2004.

Charles Tilley is Chief Executive of CIMA, and a prominent advocate for global reform of corporate reporting and a commentator on a wide range of business and management accounting issues. He speaks at events around the world on business sustainability and ethics. He is a member of the International Integrated Reporting Council and the Supervisory Board for The Prince’s Accounting for Sustainability project. As chief executive of CIMA, Charles leads the senior management team and has spearheaded CIMA’s strategy of global growth.

Tony Manwaring is Chief Executive of Tomorrow’s Company, a UK-based global think tank shaping the future of business success.  Tony is a member of the City Values Forum, which emerged from the previous Lord Mayor’s Restoring Trust in the City initiative, and also leads the Forum’s work on Governing Values. Through his work at Tomorrow’s Company Tony is leading on a number of initiatives aimed at reshaping capital markets, specifically through work on incentives as well as other work looking at issues of fiduciary duty and redefining value.

The event is being held in partnership with CIMA as part of our Tomorrow’s Value programme of lectures. Tomorrow’s Value invites some of the most senior figures from the global business world to explore what we mean by value – how it is created, how it can be measured, and what the drivers of value creation are. The first Tomorrow’s Value Lecture was given by Lord Stephen Green, Chairman of HSBC Holdings plc at Mansion House. Subsequent lectures have been given by Paul Feeney, Chief Executive of Old Mutual Wealth, Mona Mourshed, Senior Partner of McKinsey & Company; and Jason Robinson, Head of Urban Development at Bechtel.

Tomorrow’s Company and CIMA believe that the relationship between value and values is fundamentally changing: that sustainable value creation must now recognise ‘the triple context’ combining economic drivers with social and environmental imperatives. CIMA’s qualification upholds the highest ethical standards for members throughout their careers.
