Business: Business & Ethics: Can Business and Ethics be Natural Bedfellows or are They a Contradiction in Terms? by Joe Doak, Claire Fenton, Peter Cook & Carol Padgett, Henley Business School

16th April 2015 @ 12:30 - 14:30

Henley Business School

The Henley Business School Summer Symposium 2015 will look at this question from four different perspectives. Looking at a leading multinational company, each speaker will take a different aspect of the company and examine how ethical their policies, procedures and practices are.

Following the talks there will be time for each school to discuss a relevant issue or question followed by a chaired discussion of the topic. At the end there will be a brief plenary session bringing together the points made and schools will be able to vote on whether or not you think it is possible to run a successful company whilst still retaining ethical policies, standards and practices.

All four of our speakers are from the Henley Business School, University of Reading:

• Claire Fenton is a Lecturer in Accounting with interests in corporate social responsibility;

• Joe Doak is an Associate Professor in Urban Planning & Development who has undertaken research into sustainable real estate investment and development;

• Dr Peter Cook is a Lecturer in Business & Management with years of experience in senior management;

• Associate Professor Carol Padgett is a Lecturer in Finance with a particular focus on ethics.

Suitable for: Year 12

Preparation/Pre-reading: There is no pre-reading or preparation required for this session.
