Ian Powell, Chairman and Senior Partner of PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP, will deliver a lecture entitled; 'Trust in Business; Who Needs It?' as part of the Distinguished Executive Address Series.

About the lecture

We have seen the long term gradual erosion of trust in business, and business leaders, accelerate since the global financial crisis which began in 2007. PwC Chairman Ian Powell will give his views on the underlying causes for this loss of trust in business, assess the implications for the UK's economy and set out his view on the steps politicians, regulators and business leaders need to take to regain trust.
