Can an organisation’s culture be changed?
This stand alone event featuring Enrique Aznar and Connor Flanagan which is being held at Lismullin on Friday 1st June is also 5th of a 6 model programme, further details below.
Having heard Enrique, with a background in Values Transformation and Corporate Governance in large well-known firms, speaking and leading such events a number of times since his first involvement in 2013, this partly case study led event is highly recommended.
Nearly 50 such one day events have been held since their inception in 2006. Having been involved from the outset and attended most of these, often featuring professors from leading international business schools, these highly interactive one day events have been of a consistently high ‘MBA’ standard featuring ample opportunity for discussion not only during main and breakout sessions but also at lunch and dinner, organised by their catering school! The setting is superb with 5 star overnight accommodation for those travelling some distance and their own grounds permitting both peaceful reflection and hearty discussions with business people from many positions and sectors. No need to travel overseas for events of this quality! Booking at +3531 676 0731. Anyone who can resist the homemade shortbread biscuits deserves to be applauded by Oscar Wilde who appropriately remarked for an integrity related event: “I can resist everything – except temptation”. Participants are requested NOT to use a weighing scales before or after the event!! Lismullin also features a Catering School so the quality of everything culinary matches that of the business discussion and debate! Details of the previous modules and some of the other Lismullin events are lower down on the homepage of this website.

AFRICA: October 30th-November 1st 2013 – Lagos Business School, Nigeria: 14th Annual Business Ethics Network – Africa Conference http://www.benafrica.org http://www.benafrica.org/conference-papers-and-presentations/ The Business Ethics Network of Africa’s mission is to strengthen the commitment and competence of Africans to do business with moral integrity by facilitating interaction between academics and practitioners who share an interest in business ethics. In order to achieve this mission BEN-Africa is committed to achieving the following goals:
- To facilitate interaction between academics and practitioners who share an interest in business ethics
- To gather and disseminate information on business ethics in Africa
- To strengthen the commitment and competence of our members to improve the business ethics record of Africa.
This year, the scope of the conference has been broadened to include sessions that cater for the academic practitioner and networking wings of the organisation. These sessions will include, among other things, academic presentations and keynote speeches on matters related to business ethics; workshops with a focus on matters of mutual concern for academics, practitioners and professionals; networking opportunities to build relationships and allow people to organise projects for post-conference work; learning journeys to expose attendees to local and contextual matters of business ethics (including social, business, educational and cultural perspectives); and an opportunity to consolidate on vision and strategy for BEN-Africa. Due to this broadened scope, less conference slots will be allocated to the delivery of formal academic presentations. An implication of this is that the selection process for academic presentations will be quite rigorous. Papers for the conference will not be restricted to a specific theme.
