This event will function both as an introduction to our conference season and to launch an exciting new collection of essays on business ethics written by industry professionals, as well as media and political experts.
Rate-fixing at banks, mis-selling, excessive pay and phone hacking; this year has seen repeated corporate scandals. The High Pay Centre hosts a debate on business behaviour. The event will take the format of a panel discussion, debating recent business behaviour, how it has affected public trust in the sector and what can be done to improve this trust. We will also be asking who is accountable? What role do shareholders and the Government play? Or is this companies’ own responsibility?
This event is free of charge but places are limited, to sign up, please email firstname.lastname@example.org

We look forward to a very lively and engrossing event and hope to see you all there.
