You might wonder whether you can afford to run an ethical business. This masterclass asks the question: “Can you afford not to?”

2020 has been a hugely difficult year for many businesses and flexibility and innovation have been critical to survival, but have you remembered to look after your most precious assets along the way? Whatever business you are in, how you behave affects everyone around you, particularly your staff members. Find out how you can make sure that your impact is a positive one.

A great introduction to ethical leadership and management, this masterclass will highlight the difference it can make to you, your team and your customers. The session will answer these important questions:

  • What is ethical leadership?
  • How do you know when you are doing it?
  • What are the benefits?
