Most Admired Leaders' Virtual Roundtable 2022
The Most Admired Leaders' Virtual Roundtable was an exclusive, high-level and virtual event focusing on supporting change, innovation and sustainability.
There was no charge for this event, and no speaker fees involved. It was a free, peer-group discussion and the aim to recognise, celebrate and share best practices and routes to success among Britain’s senior leaders.
Each year, alongside our academic partner, The Centre for Business in Society (CBiS) at Coventry University, Echo Research assesses Britain’s Most Admired Companies across the FTSE 100 and 250. This remains the longest running corporate reputation survey of its kind in the country, with data going back 32 years.
We designed the content to be focused and high-level, with speakers drawn from this year’s FTSE Most Admired winners, each element being concise explorations:
1. Opening scene setting: key strengths emerging from a year of continued challenge
Sandra Macleod, Group CEO, Echo Research and Britain’s Most Admired Companies
