In the news this week September 17th 2018

Dear Readers, Here are a few articles published in the last few days that address issues - such as corporate governance, leadership, the future of work, tech and AI, mental health - that Tomorrow's Company thinks business should seek to fully engage with if it is truly to become a force for good in society. Yours, The TC team
