12:00 pm: Doing the “right” thing. Convincing directors and senior executives that doing the “right” thing is not so bad
Speaker: John Keefe, Partner, Goodmans LLP
In today’s extremely competitive environment, senior executives and directors are under pressure to deliver immediate and positive results. At times, this may conflict with ethical business practices. Often, there is pressure to turn a blind eye to doing the “right thing”. Sometimes this works. Sometimes it creates a disaster. We will discuss the challenge of convincing senior executives and directors that doing the “right thing” is the right thing to do.
