About this Event:

Financial economist and former dean of the University of Oxford’s prestigious Said Business School Professor, Colin Mayer examines how corporations are failing us and what can be done to restore trust in them. Mayer explains how corporations are the source of our employment and prosperity yet, at the same time, can be the cause of poverty, pollution and financial crisis. Mayer looks under the surface of the corporation, at ownership, governance, accountability and trust, and sets out an ambitious agenda for change. He challenges the world to convert the corporation into a 21st-century organisation that we can trust to promote the interests of the economy and of society.

Mayer was dean of the Said Business School between 2006 and 2011 and is currently Peter Moores Professor of Management Studies. This event is part of a series at the festival on the theme of leadership.
