The ACOI Ethics Committee continues the theme of hearing from practitioners outside of the financial services sector on the basis that the objective is always to seek to do the right or most correct thing. Back on 23rd May the drivers, challenges and benefits of developing a corporate ethics programme, using the background of the Gulf of Mexico oil spill in 2010 were explored.

In this seminar Ed McDonald, former Chief Executive of both The Association of Advertisers in Ireland and of The Marketing Institute of Ireland, and currently Compliance Adviser to the Institute of Professional Auctioneers and Valuers will consider these questions.

The interesting nature of this subject matter and Ed’s contrarian viewpoint and perspective on the financial services sector may resonate well with some delegates, and what will ensue is a lively discussion between all. with 1 hour Ethics CPD.

Please note that this event will be recorded to facilitate the provision of a live stream webinar. Only the Speaker and Chair of the event will be recorded.
