Health, business and society
On 8 November 2011, David Brennan, chief executive of AstraZeneca, gave a powerful lecture at the latest Tomorrow’s Value lecture, at the impressive Mansion House.
David explored the relationship between health, business and society. He set out the critical importance of building trust so that business, working with other health professionals, can play a full role in developing solutions to prevent, control and treat disease more effectively.
Relationships founded on integrity are essential to good business. They also underpin the collaboration required to address the challenge of improving the world's health. AstraZeneca demonstrates how strong values and value creation help achieve business success and individual and social health.
The lecture was followed by an absorbing panel discussion, featuring; Imoni Akpofure, International Finance Corporation special representative in Europe; Malcolm Lane, director of corporate affairs at Tata Consultancy Services; and Lady Susan Rice, managing director of Lloyds Banking Group Scotland.
The evening, attended by over 150 leading executives from across the City, was rounded off by CIMA managing director Andrew Harding, who strengthened the call for ‘a movement in business for good’.
