Keynote speech: Time4Society

On Thursday the 5th of May, 2011, the very first Time4Society colloquium took place in the Antwerp County Hall (Belgium). During this interesting afternoon, I gave the keynote speech, titled "The Profits of Goodness: Linking CSR to Long-term Value Creation". At the event, I had the chance to speak with a number of thought leaders in issues of CSR in Belgium, and also chat about broader CSR issues within the European Union. You can find more details about the event, as well as pictures from the talk and the VIP evening dinner here:

My Research

I am a strategy scholar whose research focuses on Sustainability and Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR). More specifically, I seek to understand whether, how, and the extent to which the modern business organization contributes towards building a sustainable future. My academic work evolves around two main themes: a) understanding how investment analysts, and the public equity markets, perceive, evaluate and react to corporate engagement with, and integration of, environmental and social issues into strategy and b) understanding the multiple factors (e.g. institutional, regulatory, behavioural) that may affect, drive or hinder, the corporate decision to adopt environmentally and socially responsible strategies.
