Reputation is a fragile thing – it takes a very long time to create but is easily and rapidly destroyed.
It might surprise you to know that British universities boast several hundred academics whoare corporate governance experts. You may not have heard of any of them.

Either academics have nothing useful to say about corporate governance or perhaps practitioners are overlooking their research.
