Fair & Square - A Sustainable Position in Mining: the New Frontier
With COVID-19 challenging the world, the term sustainability has a new feel to it. A number of those in the resources sector have simply been unable to sustain operations with mines being closed down or production suspended due to the spread of the virus.
In this episode of Fair & Square, Charlie Jack, Hudson Sandler’s Head of Natural Resources speaks to prominent miners and developers, who share their insights on ESG - what investors are demanding, and how the industry must position itself for the next generation of millennial investors.
We also hear from the World Gold Council, Mining Journal and The Bishop of Birmingham, the latter playing a key part in the Church of England’s role in driving change in the sector. They share their thoughts on the fast evolving and accelerating ESG imperative in mining.
Fair & Square - Shining a Light on Britain’s Night-time Economy
There is a perception that pubs, bars and clubs have been having a tough time and that hundreds of closures have contributed to the decline of town centres. But is this true?
Are people really going out less than before? And how can businesses which operate in the night-time economy retain and attract new customers? For this edition of Fair and Square we
are delighted to have two of the most experienced operators in the leisure sector, Peter Marks, Chief Executive of Deltic, the UK’s largest operator of nightclubs and Ralph Findlay, CEO of Marston’s, one of the UK’s largest pub operators.
Together with Nick Lyon, who runs Hudson Sandler’s leisure practice, they explore the ever changing challenges and opportunities within the night-time economy.
Fair & Square - The Future of the Online Gambling Industry
Over recent years, fewer industries in the UK have faced greater political, public and media scrutiny than gambling. On an almost daily basis media reports on the impact of gambling on people and society. Gambling operators are often presented as irresponsible, immoral corporations that benefit from the pain of customers. On the latest edition of Fair & Square, we have assembled a panel of industry experts including David Zeffman from CMS Cameron McKenna Nabarro Olswang, Alice Hancock from the Financial Times, and Bruce Garrow from Investec who discuss what the future holds for this challenged but dynamic industry. Joining this panel is Alex Brennan, who heads up Hudson Sandler’s Consumer Industries practice.
Fair & Square - ESG: The Emerging Market Challenge
The second episode of Hudson Sandler’s Fair and Square podcast starts to look at the overarching challenge and opportunity that the increasing focus on ESG performance presents to businesses around the world. With pressure coming from government, regulators, NGOs and civil society, customers, media and consumers, companies have never been under greater pressure to demonstrate responsibility and transparency. It’s a business-critical issue that is becoming progressively politicised and increasingly urgent. In this first podcast on a subject to which we will return regularly, we introduce some of the communications challenges arising from ESG and the importance of getting it right for all audiences, not least investors and the financial community.
