Friday, 27 November, 2009

Bob Garratt, Visiting Professor at Cass, was recently installed as the fifteenth Master of the Worshipful Company of Management Consultants at a special dinner at Skinners' Hall, London.
Members of the Worshipful Company of Management Consultants are involved in providing pro-bono services to develop charities and typically deal with issues of financial skills, global competitiveness and organisational success. The Management Consultants became a fully-fledged Livery Company of the City of London in May 2004.
The Worshipful Company of Management Consultants has a very close association with Cass where it helped to establish the Centre for Charity Effectiveness which addresses these issues in the not-for-profit sector.
Professor Garratt has an international practice on board development and appraisal, corporate governance, strategic thinking and organisational learning and change. As well as being a Visiting Professor at Cass, he is also Professor Extraordinaire at the University of Stellenbosch Business School, South Africa, where he is Chairman of the Unit for Corporate Governance in Africa.
Professor Garratt said: I am honoured and very happy. I am also aware that it will be a very busy year with a lot of meetings with other City Companies which will subsequently mean a lot of lovely dinners at a time when I am trying to lose weight.
Our company is supportive of the new Lord Mayor, Nick Anstee, whose job it is to re-establish and develop the reputation of the City of London following the global financial crisis. The Worshipful Company of Management Consultants, also includes a large number of Visiting Professors from Cass who will certainly be supporting the Lord Mayor in his work.
