Ethical Leadership in Business

Driving innovation and building resilience in business and society

Disruptive technology develops at an exponential speed and impacts the way we live, work and relate to each other. Artificial intelligence, the internet of things, robotics, medical innovations, 3D printing and many more developments yet to come pose unprecedented opportunities for business and society, but also many risks. Future benefits depend on decisions taken today, so company leaders need to be well informed, innovative and forward-thinking if they are to build responsible and resilient business models.

How can ethical leadership maximize the benefits of disruptive technologies and minimize their risks for business and society?

Ethical leadership helps to foster a company’s capacity for innovation and its resilience by developing a trust-based corporate culture. Values such as respect, integrity and humility give employees direction and meaning, thus increasing their motivation, creativity and engagement. Employees are empowered to innovate products and services that will bring value to shareholders as well as to other stakeholders. 


This event will offer:

Through expert contributions, inspiring case studies, open discussion in small groups, and workshops, you will learn to:

  • develop ethical leadership in business
  • handle the impact of disruptive technologies
  • create a values-based and innovative corporate culture to face today’s challenges
  • identify and handle ethical dilemmas in the workplace
  • foster resilience of employees and the company
  • build trust across diverse stakeholder groups: employees, suppliers, customers

It was really a space for me to resource myself and it could help a lot of business people at all levels or even entrepreneurs to create a space for reflection and exchange.

It’s such a great platform and a fantastic opportunity to really be linking up with like-minded people. I learned a lot from colleagues and participants who are committing to be changemakers in this whole space of ethical business that could really drive a sustainable way of life.
