Christian Ethics Speaker - Christian Governance Speaker

Do you need an ethics speaker? The first question to answer is what is meant by ethics?

plural noun
1 [usu. treated as pl. ] moral principles that govern a person's or group's behavior : Judeo-Christian ethics.
• the moral correctness of specified conduct : the ethics of euthanasia.
2 [usu. treated as sing. ] the branch of knowledge that deals with moral principles.
Schools of ethics in Western philosophy can be divided, very roughly, into three sorts. The first, drawing on the work of Aristotle, holds that the virtues (such as justice, charity, and generosity) are dispositions to act in ways that benefit both the person possessing them and that person's society. The second, defended particularly by Kant, makes the concept of duty central to morality: humans are bound, from a knowledge of their duty as rational beings, to obey the categorical imperative to respect other rational beings. Thirdly, utilitarianism asserts that the guiding principle of conduct should be the greatest happiness or benefit of the greatest number.

Business ethics speakers typically focus on the ethical issues that arise in business and the marketplace. John is a business governance and ethics speaker. His book, Reclaiming the Ethical High Ground: Developing Organizations of Character, addresses the primary business ethics concerns of today.

When addressing groups as a business ethics speaker, he focuses on both the philosophic and practical elements of business ethics. He also looks at the legal ramifications of business ethics.
