Escaping short-termism

In October 2015, CIMA and St Paul’s Institute jointly hosted an event which explored how business models can operate more effectively and overcome the misjudgements often provided by short-termism.

Chaired by Barbara Ridpath (Director of St. Paul's Institute), with an expert panel including Anders Bouvin (Handelsbanken), Jane Fuller (Centre for the Study of Financial Innovation) and Edward Houghton (CIPD), the evening explored:

  • What a long-term culture looks like and how it can be instigated and communicated.
  • How to balance short- and long-term concerns. 
  • How investors factor in the long term view. 
  • The influence of and impact on the individual in the organisation.
