What Past Speakers Have Said

Prof. Jerry Buzek
Former President of Europrean Parliament,
Former Prime Minister of Poland

The remedy for today’s problems is nothing but a return to the values and ethical solution – both in political and business activity.

Mr. Arnaldo Abruzzini
Secretary General, Eurochambres

Well-being for many means creating wealth for the society. This is the contribution of business to modern societal challenges, framed in the set of shared value of today’s society.

Ms. Huguette Labelle
Chair, Transparency International

More business leaders need to unite in becoming a force for good in our society. Business ethics begin in the boardroom, but must be spread throughout the entire organisation, right to the front line.

Mr. Jigmi Yoser Thinley
Former Prime Minister of Bhutan

We need a wise and ethical vision that will bring all of humanity together. Such a vision must arise from an understanding of what constitutes development, personal wealth and societal prosperity in the human context.

H. E. Borut Pahor
President of Slovenia

Modern market economy will have two pillars: profit and social responsibility. The supporting pillar of the social responsibility is the ethical dimension. We need a general and personal ethical behaviour.

Ms. Sung-Joo Kim
Chairwoman of Sungjoo Group, President of the Korean Red Cross

I strongly believe that women’s intelligence and leadership will re-shape the global socio-economic structure with a new value system.

Prof. Rolf Dieter Heuer
Director General, CERN

Scientific breakthroughs require a balanced mix of excellence, positive competition, and capability to share. Only if all the individuals involved adopt a rigorous, transparent, and ethical behaviour, then true success will be achieved.

Rev. Piotr Mazurkiewicz
Former Secretary General, Commission of the Bishops’ Conferences of the European Community

We need not just ethics, but good ethics. Good ethics is only possible through the conscious spiritual effort of human beings.

Dr. Myron S. Scholes
Noble Prize Laureate in Economic Sciences

The most important need, in my view, is spirituality and the expansion of consciousness to really enhance this idea of ethics within a chaotic society.
