Most Admired Leaders' Virtual Roundtable 2021
Tuesday 15th June
The Most Admired Leaders' Virtual Roundtable was an exclusive, high-level and virtual event focusing on driving change, innovation and sustainability. There was no charge for this event, and no speaker fees involved. The aim was to recognise, celebrate and share best practices and routes to success for Britain’s senior leaders.
Global leaders and expert witnesses in image and reputation, Echo Research runs Britain’s Most Admired Companies across the FTSE - the longest running corporate reputation survey of its kind in the country, with data going back 30 years.
Together with Management Today which commission and publishes the survey annually, and Echo’s academic partner, Coventry University, the Most Admired Roundtable is organised for Most Admired C-suite leaders.
Speakers were drawn from this year’s FTSE Most Admired winners. Working together with Professor Lyndon Simkin, Executive Director at Coventry University’s Centre for Business in Society, the content was focused and high-level.
