Most Admired leaders gather at MT summit

This week, Management Today held its first one-day conference for Britain’s Most Admired Companies awards. As well as the awards announcement, several of British business’s finest stepped up to the mic to give their views on the issues facing managers and CEOs of companies large and small.
Among the speakers were Todd Stitzer, CEO of Cadbury Schweppes, who talked about the importance of getting marketing right. Mike Lynch, head of enterprise software provider Autonomy, flew in from the USA to offer his insights on innovation and also slipped in a sideswipe at some of the large corporates that manage to disenchant their brightest employees.
Fortunately, Gavin Neath, chairman of Unilever UK was there to defend the record of big companies and their ability to retain top talent. He also offered his own advice on how to attract the best employees.
