Portrait of Steve Brammer
Steve Brammer became Dean of the School of Management in June 2020.

Peter Drucker wrote 'A healthy business can’t exist in a sick society,' and much about recent events has caused leaders everywhere to re-visit the issue of how businesses and society relate to each other. Does anyone still believe that the business of business is still just business - or have we moved towards a deeper understanding of how much business needs society to function to be able to function itself? How do managers define the boundaries and responsibilities of this relationship? Must CEOs now think of themselves as activists?

In the first in a new series of webinars, we’re delighted to introduce Steve Brammer, the newly appointed Dean of the School of Management. Steve’s work has focused on sustainability and the social contract between companies and the communities they serve. He will be discussing with Margaret Heffernan how business can help society - and how far must leaders now consider the health of their entire workforce.


Leaders in the latest business thinking.
