One Great George Street, Westminster, London, SW1P 3AA The story of Cadbury and others is a story of individuals motivated in business by deeply held convictions and values. What difference did it make and what lessons can we learn today?
The values which underpinned these early Quaker businesses formed and shaped much of our industrial revolution. Today, in a culture where trust in business is at a low ebb we want to ask what lessons we can learn, lessons about integrity, endurance and culture, but also about models of business ownership and indeed, how to restore trust in the business corporation.
Deborah Cadbury will tell us something of the Cadbury story; Professor Colin Mayer will be a keynote speaker on restoring trust. They will be joined by Mark Austen, Chairman of LV Insurance, Carl Ferenbach, a private equity investor, their Director, Richard Turnbull, Baroness Wilcox, formerly a minister in the Department of Business, Innovation and Skills, and the Chairman of CEME, Lord Griffiths of Fforestfach.
The Centre for Enterprise, Markets and Ethics was established in order to promote an enterprise economy built upon ethical foundations, drawing upon the history and values of the Judeo-Christian tradition.
Everyone will also receive a copy of the Centre’s publication, ‘Quaker Capitalism: Lessons for today.’
