Ben makes the case for a digital revolution in governance, boardroom decision-making and shareholder engagement, arguing that there’s no excuse for low turnout in shareholder votes and everything to gain from empowering your shareholder base.

His platform has found fans during the lockdown, with virtual AGMs becoming more and more valuable.

Also in this episode, Christian looks at the end of the road for Wirecard; the government’s new multi-million pound research and development campaign; and the former Extinction Rebellion activist who has seen the (nuclear) light.
