Abstract

Many directors and boards struggle to understand the multiple and inter-related challenges, opportunities, possibilities, developments, trends and unexpected events of our contemporary world. This raises the questions of: whether we have unrealistic expectations of what can be achieved by a relatively small group of very similar people selected in a previous era and who may periodically meet for a relatively short time to consider agenda items set out in an annual calendar of meetings and topics of which they often have limited knowledge and experience; and whether we may have reached the limits of the ability of our current approaches to corporate governance to meet stakeholder requirements, unless new models and practices are adopted and better support is provided. To encourage thinking about options, possibilities and priorities, this discussion paper poses a series of questions for intending participants to consider ahead of the 2019 London Global Convention on Corporate Governance and Sustainability.

Questions are posed in relation to the current status of corporate governance; the evolution and future of corporate boards and board committees; sustainability and sustainable development; diversity in relationships, approaches, business models, memberships and perspectives, and in various functional, project and other groups, including corporate boards; digital and environmental governance; navigating risks and opportunities in a volatile world and achieving desired next steps. The 19th London Global Convention on Corporate Governance and Sustainability is organised by India’s Institute of Directors (http://www.iodglobal.com/).
