  • 16. 64%<br />
  • 17. 64%<br />Of people in UK name ‘transparent and honest business practices’ as driver of corporate reputation<br />
  • 18. “Public attention will focus on the decisions that boards make about bonuses.”<br />Lord Myners in the Financial Times: 2 February 2010<br />

  • 34. The rise of the social web means that everyone has the power to publish<br />So traditional ‘boundaries’ - like State borders or organisational perimeters - seem more diffused and diluted<br />And the ability of businesses to<br />nurture a currency of goodwill among stakeholders has become important<br />
