He is Founder Director of Tomorrow’s Company, a London-based globally focused agenda-setting think tank that works with business leaders and investors to shape the future of business success. Tomorrow’s Company developed the concept of the business licence to operate and redefined the concept of corporate social responsibility in the 1990s. Its work on capital markets stimulated the emergence of the UN Principles of Responsible Investment. More recently it has championed integrated reporting and a new agenda for business governance and stewardship.

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 byPaul 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.
