At a time of decreasing trust in institutions, business leaders have a responsibility not only to their company but also to society more widely. Successful leadership depends on fostering an organisation’s people and culture as well as on taking decisions that stack up for society in the long term.

Mark Wilson will reflect on what he calls being a ‘good ancestor’ and how it has informed his leadership throughout his career. From successfully navigating the Asian insurance giant AIA through the global financial crisis to leading the turnaround at Aviva to position it as a 300 year old disputer, he will discuss how business must focus on being a force for good in the world.
