Speaker: Ram Gidoomal CBE is an entrepreneur and former United Kingdom Group chief executive of the Inlaks Group.  He currently holds a number of business, charitable and faith related posts including chairman of The Lausanne Movement International board, Traidcraft plc and Traidcraft Exchange.  He was a founder chairman of the Christmas Cracker charity, which has given thousands of young people direct entrepreneurial experience and has raised over £5 million for projects in developing countries. He was the leader of the Christian Peoples Alliance and ran as their candidate for London Mayor and Assembly in 2000 and 2004.

CABE Guildford Network

25 April 2012

Title "AIRCRAFT CARRIERS, SAFETY AND BANKING: RULES, FREEDOMS AND VIRTUES FOR CONTEMPORARY  BUSINESS"

Speaker: John Strain is a Parish Priest and Adviser, Work, Economy and Business in the Diocese of Guildford. He is a former Director of the Centre for Applied and Professional Ethics at the University of Surrey and has broadcasted and published several books and articles on ethics.

John will be drawing some parallels between training for safety in aircraft carriers and training in virtue in business life. What do we mean by virtue? How does it differ from following rules? How do we train people in virtue? He will seek to show how more attention to the ethics of virtue could provide an opportunity to reconcile "the glorious liberty of the children of God" that is so crucial to business as well as our moral lives with the need for a sensible approach to rules and moral infrastructures.

Venue: YMCA, Bridge Street, Guildford, Surrey GU1 4SB
