EO 070 – Olasesi Martins

Goldengate Consulting
Chief Executive Officer

Why did you attend the programme?
I attended the course to broaden my knowledge on ethics and to be well positioned as an Ethics Officer to teach or train on ethics and related matters.

How did the programme benefit you personally?
I now incorporate discussions on ethical issues in most of my conference presentations. I discovered that many decisions that people make are based on ethics and their perceptions on what is ethical dictates the quality of their decisions.
In my presentations, by bringing in ethical issues, I intentinally position my audience to look at issues ethically, and critically probe their minds what thier decisions are likely to be. From their responses, that has helped them a lot in their daily lives and even in their working environments.

How is the programme benefiting your company?
It has helped us a lot to realise that our company needs to be a corporate citizen in all respects. An ethical organisation in essence is a corporate citizen. That goes beyond corporate social responsibility or investment.
