Trust-Busting or Trust-Building: How Can The City Earn Trust?

Charles Bowman, Rebecca Aston, Alison Cottrell, Nicholas Cooke QC

In recent years, the reputation of the financial services and related professional services industries has been corroded by a series of scandals. In 2017, the largest ever decline in trust across the institutions of government, business, media and NGOs was reported.

In the light of the 2016 Brexit vote, it is clear that trust amongst society and commerce is more important  than ever. The City has a responsibility to regain the trust of the society it is here to serve.

This talk and panel discussion will explore the fundamentals of trust, why companies lower standards at their peril, and what, other than pious words, can be done to restore confidence that society has appropriate levels of commercial trust.


As mentioned in the talk by The Lord Mayor, below is a link to the Business of Trust survey:
