Major companies are increasingly coming under fire as they try to pursue their private business on a public battleground - be it Shell & Brent Spar, Monsanto & GM foods or BAA & Heathrow Terminal 5. Private Business-Public Battlegound brings together two former opponents - Des Wilson, founder of Shelter and former Chairman of Friends of the Earth & John Egan, former Chief Executive and 'saviour' of Jaguar and now Chairman of Tomorrow's Company - to discuss the value of a stakeholder approach and show how it can help companies operating at the interface between private and public interest. Together they review recent cases and controversies and draw on their experience on the board of BAA to show how this approach can work in practice.
