As trust in institutions has declined, self reliance is on the rise and the future depends on individual performance. This interactive one-hour workshop focuses on two essential qualities that will set you up for the future - trust and ethics. How can you build trust? What does ethics mean for you? Are the ethical goalposts shifting and how far will they go?

Highly respected Ethics Fellow, Clare Payne, will inspire by painting a picture of what is possible when you engage with trust and ethics. 


12.45 for 1.00pm – 2.00pm

This fast paced workshop draws on Clare’s book, A Matter of Trust, particularly Chapter 7, ‘Ethics Informing Practice. Run over the course of an hour, you will gain:

  • The Context: Understand the ethical trends that will affect the way you work. 

  • The Practice: Learn techniques to enhance trust in you, shifting the focus from re-building trust to being trustworthy.

  • Effective Communication: Learn the language of trust and ethics.
