Lectures

Tomorrow's Value

CIMA has joined up with the leading think tank Tomorrow’s Company to host the Tomorrow's Value lecture series. We invite some of the most senior figures from the global business world to explore what we mean by value – how it is created, how it can be measured and what the drivers of value creation are.

Beyond that, we are asking business leaders how they link creating business value with values. These issues are set out in depth in our briefing paper, Tomorrow’s Value.

November: Responsible investment: tough choices and practical dilemmas

On 13 November Paul Feeney, Chief Executive of Old Mutual Wealth (OMW), set out how he is transforming OMW to achieve long-term sustainability, and ‘enable positive futures for clients, investors, employees and communities.’ 

How to leverage opportunities amid unprecedented risk

At the first Tomorrow’s Company event held in New York on 9 October 2013, Gregory Case, President and Chief Executive of global insurance company Aon, said the aggregate level of risk to businesses is rising at an unprecedented pace. Cybersecurity challenges threaten businesses and even the stock exchanges where value is traded. Social media’s expanding influence can draw attention to risks, crush reputations and cause investors to flee.

Yet, Case explained, there is more opportunity than ever for businesses that understand integrated risk. Along with volatility, globalisation provides increased access to new markets, and social media provides an inexpensive way for companies to tell their story to a vast audience.

A journey of culture change

An event on 6 March saw Dick Olver, Chairman of BAE Systems, speak about a journey of culture change he has led at BAE Systems.
