The aim of the Corporate Governance Workshop 2016 is to provide concrete information and proposals for promoting the attainment of excellence in the corporate governance of Italian companies, based on the annual activity of the Observatory on Corporate Governance Excellence in Italy, created by The European House – Ambrosetti in 2004.
During the course of the event an in-depth examination and observations regarding the Observatory’s traditional areas of expertise were presented, which this year was extended to include those Italian listed companies belonging to the FTSE MIB, STAR e MID CAP segments of the Italian Stock Exchange, including:
Other issues to be discussed were those that are currently of greatest interest for the governance of businesses. These included an analysis of the skills required by board members and the areas of inefficiency associated with overlapping control systems with the identification of solutions of rationalization, by also focusing on the simplification offered by the one-tier model. Corporate governance experts, representatives of government and institutions and members of the business community and international institutional investors were called upon to exchange opinions on these issues.
