There are a variety of questions that directors can and should ask about the contribution, relevance and state of contemporary corporate governance who should be involved in shared leadership and by what means, ethical perspectives and corporate culture, steps that boards can take to build trust with business, companies and capitalism, risk oversight and governance, the contribution of independent directors, ensuring and supporting independent judgement, sustainability, resilience and enabling technologies, whether a single or multiple approaches are desirable, and the way ahead. Diversity may be preferable to convergence,

Is it incumbent upon all those who feel that business and many companies need to become more responsible and sustainable, to speak up within whatever stakeholder groups they belong to and advocate change? As citizens and directors, should we look at outcomes being sought from regulations, laws and codes and consider what we can do to bring them about, either individually or collectively, through influencing and working with our peers?
