Mark Goyder is the founder of Tomorrow’s Company, a not-for-profit organisation championing long-term business sustainability. Goyder has a proven track record, having spoken around the world in front of a variety of audiences and having broadcast and published widely across television, radio and print media.
After 15 years as a manager in manufacturing businesses, Mark initiated the RSA Tomorrow’s Company inquiry into ‘the role of business in a changing world’. The resulting report, published in 1995 led to the creation of Tomorrow’s Company as an independent, business-led think tank. It also laid the foundations for the “enlightened shareholder value” approach in the redefinition of the directors’ duties in the 2006 Companies Act. Goyder has served in advisory capacities for British Airways, BT, Co-operative Financial Services and Novo Nordisk, Alliance Boots, and Camelot.
Goyder is an award-winning public speaker and leads the push for long-term sustainable business throughout the country and further afield. He challenges audiences to question their own business outlook and mentality- to look beyond the short-term and reach for a more sustainable future.
A broadcaster, writer and winner of the Institute of Management Studies Tillers Millennium Trophy for best speaker, Mark was Director Magazine Director of the Month in June 2004. Journalist Anthony Hilton described Tomorrow’s Company as “five years ahead of the pack in looking at what is needed in governance terms to make British companies sustainable wealth creators”.
In recent years he has concentrated on the issue of board and investor responsibilities for stewardship, co-authoring a report with the Institute for Family Business on Family Business Stewardship. He is currently a member of the UK’s Investor Stewardship Working Party which in 2012 launched the 2020 Stewardship report.
