OUR KEYNOTE SPEAKER: A former judge of the Supreme Court of South Africa, Mervyn Eldred King is currently Chair of the IIRC, Chairman emeritus of the Global Reporting Initiative and director of the Association of Business Administrators of Southern Africa. He is best known for chairing the King Committee on Corporate Governance, which issued comprehensive reports in 1994, 2002, 2009, and 2016. The King Reports, which endorse an integrated and inclusive approach to corporate governance, have had substantial influence on the development of global corporate governance.
“It’s a question of value creation. If you have scarce natural resources, and you just focus on short-term profit and concentrate on trying to get more dividends to shareholders, you’re going to destroy the company.” — Mervyn E. King.
