Seminar programme

2015

March alumni seminar, Taupo
Friday 6 to Sunday 8 March, 2015

Topic: Cutting through the clutter: why business must engage with policy people

Successful businesses consider their economic, environmental and social impact. We address the question of how best to engage with the government and whether to adopt a reactive, interactive or proactive approach to public policy. Understanding how the government affects a business’s operations and long term profitability is critical to long-term success.

In this thought-provoking seminar, led by Darden Business School Faculty, with high-profile commentators from both sides of the fence, we will look at the relationships between business, public policy groups and the government and what can be done to ensure businesses actively participate in public policy in a proactive way. Other speakers to be announced.In this thought-provoking seminar, led by Darden Business School Faculty, with high-profile commentators from both sides of the fence, we will look at the relationships between business, public policy groups and the government and what can be done to ensure businesses actively participate in public policy in a proactive way.
