2nd Colloquium: Effective Corporate Leadership

28 November 2019 @ 08:30 *
* South African Standard Time, UTC + 2:00


The Second Colloquium of The Good Governance Academy was held on 28 November 2019. As with the first colloquium there was input from universities and business schools on a critical governance issue, namely Effective Corporate Leadership.

The theme of the colloquium was based on the premise that the company is an artificial, incapacitated person and that its mind and conscience is that of its individual corporate leaders. The essential question in our resource constrained world is whether these individual corporate leaders are steering the business of the company to be at the junction of the three critical dimensions for sustainable development, the economy, society and the environment. How the company makes its money is critical in the 21st century. To make a profit but with such an adverse impact on the environment that holistically society is losing value, is not good leadership.


  • Prof Pedro Tabensky - What makes an effective corporate leader?
  • Prof Jill Atkins - Is a company’s business model sustainable without considering the risks of climate change and species extinction?
