King was one of the biggest names at the Finance Indaba 2016 and enthralled the audience with his presentation on the ongoing shift from thinking about short-term profit to focusing on sustainable capitalism:

"We have to learn to make more with less. We now have to look at the value of a company through the whole value creation process and whether it's going to sustain that. Companies are expected to embed in their strategies how they are dealing with critical social and environmental aspects."

Listen to the "doyen of corporate governance" talk about the evolving role of the CFO and why financial executives are best placed to make meaningful contributions to the drive towards sustainable capitalism:

The Finance Indaba is the biggest annual event on the continent for financial managers and specialists who are seeking partnerships to drive progress.
