Hult Ashridge Professor, Matt Gitsham is working with organisations and governments to fight modern slavery.

In recent years, a growing number of corporate leaders have championed a move towards more ethical and sustainable business practices. Matt is keen to see this trend continue to gain momentum, and much of his recent work has looked at how to be a successful and socially responsible leader in today’s business environment. The research has been conducted in partnership with global networks like the International Business Leaders Forum (IBLF), the Academy of Business in Society (ABIS), Business in the Community (BITC), and Business Fights Poverty.

From John Brock, Chairman and CEO of Coca-Cola Enterprises, to Sir Mark Moody-Stuart, former Chairman of Shell and Anglo American, Matt has talked with some of the world’s most successful corporate executives about how the role of business leadership is evolving. Using the experiences that have personally shaped the thinking of these business leaders, Matt and his collaborators have helped to create more effective training programs for tomorrow’s ethical business leaders.

In this webinar,  Matt debunks 6 myths on modern slavery.
