At KPMG, our philosophy is to focus on the health and wellbeing of our people, our clients and our communities as our first priority, and to take an informed approach that is sensible, balanced and respectful of our diverse community.
We are also committed to providing you with the latest insights and support material to assist you in your roles during this volatile period. Stay up to date with our business implications of COVID-19.
In this edition of Across the Board we are also pleased to launch our 2020 edition of the Directors' Toolkit, which delves into a range of critical governance topics to assist you in your board roles. Topics such as social impact and stakeholder trust, the new whistle-blower and modern slavery legislation, and the outcomes from the ASIC Corporate Governance Taskforce report REP 631 are also discussed in this issue.
Finally, we hear from our Chairman, Alison Kitchen, on her insights after attending the World Economic Forum at DAVOS, Switzerland, earlier this year. It is certainly interesting to reflect on the rapid speed of changes that have occurred in our world since DAVOS.
