Corporate Purpose – The Future of Regulation and Governance

February 2021
Region: Europe

2020 bought unprecedented disruption from a global pandemic, Brexit, global political movements and an even stronger spotlight on climate change. This has bought wider societal and global pressures into sharper focus for many businesses. The events of 2020, in conjunction with calls for greater transparency of ESG issues, mean that corporate governance failures and public discourse retain their position at the top of the policy agenda.

We bring you a keynote address from Lord Callanan, Minister for Climate Change and Sustainability on the future of regulation in a post-Brexit, post-pandemic landscape. This will be followed by an analysis of the regulatory landscape from our panel of governance experts: Matthew Kirk, senior advisor at Squire Patton Boggs and former external affairs director at Vodafone; Rosie Donachie, Group head of Government Relations and Regulatory Strategy at London Stock Exchange Group; and Hannah Kendrick, Corporate Partner and Governance lead at Squire Patton Boggs.
