Bert Boerman - CEO at Governance.com
"Leaders in the financial sector hold the keys to the entire economic system, and failures can bring this system to a halt as we have seen in the past. Leadership with integrity is however about more than avoiding fraud and excessive risk taking. It's about empowering people to transparently take decisions on a daily basis that create value while protecting the organization, it's stakeholders and the financial system, even if those decisions may conflict with personal interests."
David Clutterbuck - Practice Lead at David Clutterbuck Partnership
"Is there is a clash of principles between leaders of integrity and courage? Or is it a chaotic demonstration of the worst aspects of political maneuvering?" David Clutterbuck will draw on his own and other research into the nature of effective modern leadership and into the role of coaching and mentoring in politics to ask salient questions for the development of the next generation of leaders in all aspects of society.
Viviane Reding - Member of the Luxembourg Parliament
"In professional life and political engagement, principles are the same. In order to build confidence (indispensable for a long-term engagement with clients, voters and collaborators), transparent and coherent action, based on integrity and predictability, is a must."
Rolf Strauch - Chief Economist & Management Board Member of Economics, Policy Strategy, & Banking at the European Stability Mechanism (ESM) & the European Financial Stability Facility (EFSF)
“The key quality of leadership is integrity – the consistency between values, beliefs and deeds. Leading with integrity in a European institution means valuing diversity and respect, believing that united we stand taller, and doing your best for the well-being of the European people.”
