Over the last three decades I have been privileged to chair the Eminent Persons Group at the United Nations on Governance and Oversight, the Global Reporting Initiative, the International Integrated Reporting Council (Value Reporting Foundation), the Integrated Reporting Committee of South Africa and the King Committee on Corporate Governance. I have also sat on corporate governance advisory boards in the Far East and at the World Bank.
I record the above not out of self-praise but to indicate that because of my international appointments I have associations with universities and business schools abroad, in the USA, UK, Europe, Far East and Australia. It is that association which I have voluntarily given to the GGA to act as a catalyst to share governance and business science matters of extreme public interest on a collaborative basis.
Professor Mervyn King, Patron and Founder of the Good Governance Academy and Chairman Emeritus, together with Michael Bloomberg, of the Value Reporting Foundation
