The BFO Leadership Circle

Tuesday 1 July, 2014
‘Banking and Finance leaders discuss their tough choices’

A series of events for senior leaders and those identified as future leaders in the industry. The essence of the Leadership Circle is personal storytelling.

The intimate format involves a panel that varies from 2 – 4 leaders from banking and finance discussing times in their professional lives when their moral compass was challenged and how they navigated their way to an ethical solution. The discussion is followed by an informal Q&A.


Mr Simon McKeon AO, Chairman of AMP
Mr Steve Tucker, Former CEO of MLC
Dr Simon Longstaff AO, Executive Director The Ethics Centre

Watch this discussion as Dr Longstaff discovers some of the difficult times these leaders have gone through and we are encouraged to make the right choice.
