Key moments

We need more women on corporate board.
David Gray
Top of the list of concerns of directors is around the quality and the availability of quality candidates to be on boards. You can have the best corporate governance code in the world, but it's about the people who are actually in the companies implementing them.
David Gray
A good board acts like a good string quartet or a philharmonic orchestra. They have complementary skills about the industry, about the company, about accounting, auditing, law, finance, all of which are part and parcel of a director’s mission.
