Event details


Thu 20 Jun 2019, 8:30am - 2:30pm


Ivy Ballroom, 320 George Street, Level 1 Sydney, NSW 2000

In the aftermath of the Royal Commission into Misconduct in the Banking, Superannuation and Financial Services Industry, a skeptical public is looking for leaders to reframe organisational culture and behaviour, putting long-term benefit ahead of short-term gain. How can leaders prepare to “do well” and “do good”?

Ethical Leadership in an Accelerating World is designed for AGSM alumni and guests. Participants will increase their understanding of the dynamic forces impacting ethical leadership today to make strategic business decisions, uncover new market opportunities, and more effectively engage with cynical consumers. An emphasis will be placed on how leadership behaviour impacts industries, markets, and workforces, and the implications of inaction.

Ethical Leadership in an Accelerating World draws on subject matter expertise from across the AGSM alumni and UNSW academic communities and a panel of leaders from the corporate, for-purpose, government and startup sectors will share their first-hand experiences as agents of change.
