The Tata-Mistry boardroom battle is a watershed event in India Inc's history. It has cast the spotlight on the quality of corporate governance in our board managed companies--and sparked off the need for a wider, robust debate around the role of independent directors, the need for higher levels of transparency and fairness and also how to protect the interest of all stakeholders, and many other prickly issues.
Founding Fuel organised a public conversation, in partnership with our partners BOOM Live, around the wider governance lessons from this ongoing, unseemly controversy.
The panelists were:
- Sanjeev Aga, business leader & independent director
- Subroto Bagchi, chairman, Odisha Skill Development Authority
- Sanjoy Bhattacharyya, managing partner, Fortuna Capital
& the conversation was anchored by Indrajit Gupta, co-founder, Founding Fuel
