Lord Mayor's conference on Values and Trust in the City - Monday 4th October 2010

You may have spotted a letter in the FT on Wednesday 29th September from 17 leaders of the financial services sector in the City, pledging themselves to exercise leadership to "create, oversee and imbue their organisations with an enlightened culture based on professionalism and integrity".

On the following Monday, Lord Mayor Nick Anstee hosted a seriously heavy-hitting conference to take the conversation beyond law and regulation and to stimulate the shift from talk to action. Speakers included Marcus Agius, Chairman of Barclays, and Hector Sants, Chief Executive of the Financial Services Authority. The tone of the meeting was clear: we accept we have a problem and we have to do something about it.

This is a subject close to my heart (part of the holistic sustainability agenda that is my theme for the year) so I was delighted when the Worshipful Company of Management Consultants invited Sally Muggeridge, Junior Warden, and me to join a team working on this topic with the Lord Mayor-elect, Michael Bear. Watch this space.
