Video Tomorrow’s Company interviewing Oonagh Harpur, Senior Board Advisor

by Luke Robinson _______11th August 2016

Following the publication of the Report on Corporate Culture and the Role of Boards by the Financial Reporting Council (FRC), the City Values Forum working with Tomorrow’s Company has released for consultation a paper entitled: Governing Culture: Risk and Opportunity? – a draft guide to board leadership in purpose, values and culture.

Oonagh Harpur underlines the importance of culture for boards and strategy and suggests that boards can do three things to turn culture into an opportunity:

Consultation on the guide is opened for comments and suggestions until Wednesday, 7th September. Contributions should be forwarded by e-mail to and
