Professor Nada Kakabadse gives keynote speech at ‘ICSA: The Governance Institute'

Professor Nada Kakabadse of Henley Business School has given a keynote speech at the ‘ICSA: The Governance Institute’ on the subject of ‘Stewardship: Rethinking Best Boardroom Practice'.

Nada explained how strategic misalignment within organisations has resulted in trust in UK businesses dropping from 45% to 43% over 2018, against a global average of 52%.

Her speech also highlighted that an overemphasis on control and efficiency, plus a significant lack of stewardship and resilience, is increasingly worrying leaders and corporate governance specialists. They face new challenges including regulations which ensure companies report on stakeholder engagement and disclose and explain CEO pay in comparison to their employees’ median pay.
