The Electra Business Breakfast Kāpiti is delighted to be hosting Dr Michael Macaulay of the School of Government, Victoria University of Wellington. Mike will be speaking on integrity, ethics and anti-corruption from a global and New Zealand perspective.

In a world in which trust is noticeably decreasing, what are the links between ethics, integrity and good governance?

Is being perceived to be good, simply an issue of reputation or are there more tangible benefits?

And how can business protect its future with integrity?
