Video Interview: Corporate Social Innovation and the Challenges it Faces

Recently, a very successful and insightful breakfast roundtable took place at London Business School. It was hosted by our Dean, Sir Andrew Likierman, and Deloitte through the Deloitte Institute of Innovation and Entrepreneurship.

We were joined by several leaders from the world of business and the world of social enterprise to discus the issues of what corporate social innovation means, and what challenges it is likely to face in the future.

In this video, Deloitte’s Heather Hancock and myself, discuss this issue further.

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.
