Seminar: Ethics, Sex and Power

Event Date: 15th March 2012
Venue: Emoyeni, View Room, 15 Jubilee Street, Parktown


Our wish for this seminar when we designed the programme was to offer unforgettable, reality-based experiences that are tailored to engage, to challenge and to profoundly inspire us. It aimed to engage us as managers and leaders in thought-provoking discussions that form the basis of ethical decision-making from dynamic, experienced and stimulating speakers. The delegates relished in the knowledge and wisdom shared. This was a platform for us to dialogue as peers as part of building our ethical courage muscle to stand the test of the real-life ethical dilemmas and challenges when they present themselves in our personal and professional lives.

As Busara Leadership Partners, we truly believe that ethics build resilient individuals, divisions and companies. Financial, legal and reputational consequences can be catastrophic for transgressions. We believe in the ancient Chinese saying says that the fish rots from the head. Therefore any organisation's success or failure has its root cause in its leadership and their competence in building and strengthening an ethical culture. The seminar provided the delegates the opportunity to glean ideas and strategies on how they can reduce the risk of ethics violations in their organisations.

We thank the delegates, for seeing value and taking time out of their hectic schedule to take up this opportunity to embolden their ethical muscle and to also share their experiences and knowledge with their peers. It was a memorable learning experience!
