Luncheon Series Examining Corporate Power - Lobbying
Tuesday 21 October 2014
32-36 Loman Street
Conference Room B
London SE1 0EH
Over the next several months, the High Pay Centre will be examining the political power of business in the UK, specifically where corporate power many dictate policies that have a big impact on inequality. The influence exerted by business is rarely discussed and is almost now taken for granted. However, it manifests itself in countless ways with government finding it increasingly difficult to ensure that global corporations pay tax and challenge negative trends, such as excessive executive pay.
This project will seek to bring the debate over corporate power into the public domain and encourage discussion amongst all stakeholders in society about the appropriate role for business in politics. As part of this project, the High Pay Centre will be hosting a luncheon on Tuesday 21st October from 12:30 - 14:00 around the theme of lobbying. Stefan Stern, management writer and visiting professor at Cass Business School, and Tamasin Cave, co-author of A Quiet Word: Lobbying, Crony Capitalism, and Broken Politics in Britain. will open the event with brief remarks followed by a wider discussion.
Space for this event is extremely limited in order to allow for more in-depth discussion. If you are interested in attending please email Kathryn Nash at firstname.lastname@example.org.
