Tom Morrison essay competition

If you are a student or recent graduate you can win £1000 by entering our Tom Morrison essay competition ( £500 runner up prize). This competition is kindly sponsored by Sharegift.

Simply answer the following question:

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. Essays should be 2,000-2,500 words in length, with 2,500 being the maximum number of words that will be accepted. The deadline for submission is 17:00 GMT on Monday 19 March 2018.
