David O'Hara speaks at cityzone directorFORUM event

David O'Hara, Founder of Blackthorn Focus, was Guest Speaker at the cityzone directorFORUM event at Cass Business School.

David's presentation focused on smallcap corporate governance issues and the forthcoming NEDucation 2010.

"Following the financial crisis, I expect the role of non-executive directors with listed companies will come under greater scrutiny. My research on non-executives in the FTSE350 has uncovered some disturbing results. Change is coming to this area of corporate governance and if it is not driven by regulation, shareholders will have to rise to the challenge."

Ronan Bryan, CEO of cityzone added "David O’Hara is not afraid to provoke dialogue about the small cap marketplace. As guest speaker, his energy, insight and fresh ideas helped to galvanise the debate. His NEDucation initiative is much-needed and we wish Blackthorn Focus every success in helping to improve boardroom practice.”
