Tom Morrison Essay Prize

Take part in ICSA’s 2018 Tom Morrison Essay Prize competition, initiated and supported by ShareGift, and be in with a chance of winning £1000!

£500 runner-up prize.

The competition, which was launched in 2016 in memory of Tom Morrison FCIS, an active member and past president of ICSA and a highly regarded and influential member of the share registration industry, encourages new thinking and recognises original approaches to governance. Now in its third year, this year’s competition is seeking essay submissions that demonstrate an original perspective on the following topic:

It has been said that governance failures usually happen within the subsidiary structure of a large business, but all governance focus tends to be at the main board level. Is the focus on the right area and, if not, what improvements could be made? 

Your answer need not be restricted to the corporate sector.  References to other sectors (public sector, not-for-profit organisations, etc.) can be used to support your argument.

The deadline for submitting entries is 5pm GMT on Monday 19 March 2018.

All entries must be word processed rather than handwritten and submitted in PDF format.
