Go beyond The Bottom Line with The Open University
This week we’ll talk about stock markets and box ticking (or compliance).
The surges and crashes of the world’s stock markets over the past year have hit the headlines on an almost daily basis. It’s been bad news for pensioners and large shareholders alike – and the volatility is an acute headache for company bosses too.
This week Evan Davis challenges Chief Executive Andrew Moss of Aviva, the insurance giant, about the recent dramatic drop in his share prices. Does he obsessively check hour by hour how Aviva’s doing? And can Todd Stitzer, CEO of the huge confectionery company Cadbury, explain how he manages share price expectations in this economic downturn?
Joining them to discuss this and the dreaded term 'compliance', is Kavita Oberoi of Oberoi Consulting, the healthcare IT services company. With one foot in the public sector and the other in the private, she discusses the need for rules and regulations in the business world. But Evan asks, have we all gone compliance mad? Or is it actually useful to tick boxes?
