Stefan Stern – The Business Journalist View
Stefan Stern is a leading journalist and author on management, and is also Visiting Professor in management practice at Bayes Business School (formerly Cass) and a Fellow of the RSA. He was director of the think tank, the High Pay Centre, from 2015 to 2018. Stefan drew on his extensive experience of writing and teaching about the business world to share his thoughts on the NED role (and what makes a ‘good’ NED) as well as some of the issues which boards are (or should be) facing – executive pay being one.
His career in journalism has included stints at Euromoney, the BBC, Management Today and the Financial Times, (where he was the management columnist). He continues to write for the FT and the Guardian, among other titles. He is the author of several books, including, “Myths of Management – what people get wrong about being the boss” (with Prof. Cary Cooper) and “How To Be A Better Leader”. His latest book, “The Lady Macbeth Guide to Ambition”, will be out in the autumn.
