Prof Ioannou shortlisted: Thinkers 50 Future Thinker Award!

The Thinkers50 Awards were added in 2011 to recognise the exceptional contributions of individual thinkers in a number of categories. The Thinkers50 Awards have been described as “the Oscars of Management Thinking” because, like the Oscars, they are highly prestigious in their industry and are presented at a Thinkers50 Awards Ceremony in London (on the same day that the new Thinkers50 rankings are published). The short listed nominees for each Award are published in September.

There are Thinkers50 Awards in the following categories:

  • Breakthrough Idea Award
  • Leadership Award
  • Innovation Award
  • Strategy Award
  • Global Solutions Award
  • Thinkers50 Book Award
  • Future Thinker Award

The Thinkers50 Panel of Advisors will consider all nominations for the Thinkers50 Awards. The shortlisted nominees will be announced in early September 2013. Winners will be announced on 11 November 2013.

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.
