Corruption and Leadership: Can you be a leader and avoid becoming corrupt?

Nineteenth-century British historian Lord Acton once said, “Power tends to corrupt, absolute power corrupts absolutely.” Today, many people still believe this to be true. Whether leaders are in politics, business, health, science, technology or any other field of endeavour, the general public automatically assumes that they take unfair advantage of their power, just because they can and just because they can get away with it. Is this cynicism or reality? Can leaders avoid the pitfalls that come with responsibility? If so, how?

In this particular Telfer MBA conference, our guest speakers will explore aspects of the link between corruption and power in business.
