Speaking out on rebuilding trust

11 October 2012

To follow up on my video post last week, I thought you would be interested to see PwC chairman Ian Powell’s keynote speech given at the Building Public Trust awards last week.

Ian highlighted that the loss of trust is not just in business, but in institutions generally. Rebuilding trust, he said, is fundamental to a functioning, fair and successful economy.

He called for concerted action to rebuild trust in business and make sure that the value business brings to society is recognised.

Ian talked about three key elements that need to be included in the plan of action, namely:

  • First, government must stand up for business
  • Second, business leaders have to be prepared to stand up for themselves
  • And third we in the professions that support business need to be prepared to embrace change. 

You can take a look at the 'Building public trust' animated film Ian shared during his speech. And find out all about who won the awards for 'excellence in reporting' and the forthcoming awards luncheons on the BPTA website.
