One World Week Event Forum: Business and Social Responsibility: Do good values equal good business?

Corporate power often limits your welfare. How free are we from corporate power and to what extent do businesses take their responsibility? The largest multinational corporations have more wealth and power than most of the countries of the world. It is clear that they have a strong impact on society. How can we ever be sure the companies pursue goals that are feasible for the society interacting with them? Is there a demand for more social entrepreneurs? What is the role of managers, legislation and governments?

Speakers for this talk include:

  • Mr. Olivier Kayser, Vice President, Europe, Ashoka
  • Professor Alyson Warhurst, Director, Corporate Citizenship Unit, Warwick Business School
  • Mr. Edward Bickham, Executive Vice President, Anglo-American plc
