Hilton and Microsoft on how to speak to board directors and save billions of dollars
This week: Daniella Foster, senior director for global corporate responsibility, and Jennifer Marsman, principal software development engineer talk with Ian Welsh about how to piece together the narratives for future-proofing business models. They discuss the business cases that really make sceptical board directors sit up and help drive forward smart solutions. Foster and Marsman debate how to get beyond the obvious answers and how to make billion-dollar savings.
Plus: why California will require women directors on corporate boards; initiatives on gender empowerment, modern slavery, and food and land use at the UN General Assembly; and, changing public attitudes to plastics, in the news digest.
