An Evening with Professor Mervyn King - This event is now full!

Governance New Zealand and The Institute of Directors invite you to a special evening presentation.

This is a rare opportunity to hear from one of the world’s foremost “leading luminaries” in the field of governance and is an event that definitely should not be missed!


The corporate world has moved away from the principal and agency theory as well as the primacy of the shareholder.

In this context there has been a paradigm shift away from a financial capital market system to an inclusive capital market system.

A company is no longer able to be described as a good corporate citizen merely by increasing its monetary bottom line. The critical issue is how the company increased that bottom line? What were the effects on how it made its money on the three dimensions that are indivisible and integrated according to the Sustainable Development Goals of the United Nations, namely the economy, society and the environment?

Value creation today is outcomes based so shouldn’t governance be outcomes based?
