Do Nice People Always Finish Last?
Can the Virtuous Succeed in the Marketplace?
NEW PRICE –> Now Only $19.50 (Light Breakfast Included)
The marketplace can be a minefield to navigate: where ethics, values, morals, principles and wholesome philosophies can be derailed by the pressure of success, making money or working for a boss.
Because of this dilemma we are pleased to continue our Talks with Tom series discussing the topic of ethics in business. The conversation will be lead by Max Oliva, SJ who is an eminent teacher of ethical decision-making in the workplace. Max, also a Jesuit priest, has pursued a lifetime of study in this field of business – serving on the front-lines, advising executives in the US and Canada and publishing several books on the topic. The marketplace can often look like a moral desert, so, who can you really turn to in order to discuss ethics? The issues are seldom black and white and often require a nuanced response.
You’re invited to join us as we conduct a candid exploration of the ethical dilemmas facing business people and the keys to navigating the crossroads faithfully.
Also joining the conversation will be Michael Meneer, Vice President for development, communications and marketing at the Pacific Salmon Foundation and Tina Francis a businesswoman, professional photographer, published writer.
