Trust and Integrity in the Global Economy


TIGERoadshows draw together highly regarded speakers, corporate delegates, social entrepreneurs and local authorities around embedding integrity and trust into our organisations and business life.

The aim is to explore and understand the ethical dimension as a fundamental aspect of good business; to propagate new social and ethical enterprise models; and to share in the learning and experiences of leading practitioners. The Roadshow is also a forum for access to specialist organisational and personal support, consultancy and networks. This will help you to implement the organisational changes that bring about the right ethical values for a good organisation.

This will be a compelling, lively and thought provoking event, coming at a critical time. Join us to learn from people and organisations who are getting it right. Let’s get motivated by a dynamic day and a shared commitment to economic change.

The event is supported by:
