Background: Following the release of his book, ‘Stop The Rot: Reframing Corporate Governance For Directors and Politicians’ in 2017, Bob has been speaking with directors and politicians in eight countries and recently presented to the All Party Parliamentary Group for Corporate Governance on 11 March 2020 at Westminster. Bob reflects on these experiences and discusses what he believes a 21st century board really looks like.
Speaker: Professor Bob Garratt is a ‘pracademic’ – a businessman and director who has always kept one foot in academia to ensure that he keeps his clients’, and himself, honest. He has consulted at the highest levels in some 40 countries and been chairman of consultancies in Hong Kong, Singapore and London. He has worked with the International Monetary Fund, Washington DC, the Saudi Arabian Monetary Authority, and given evidence to the UK Treasury Select Committee on the Restructuring of the corporate governance of the Bank of England. His background spans architectural and community education at the Architectural Association School, London, Ulster College, Belfast, and then into top management and board review and development through The General Electric Company’s action learning-based Developing Senior Managers Programme. He was on the faculties of The Judge Institute of Management, University of Cambridge, and Imperial College, London.
