Doing Virtuous Business: Ted Malloch, Geoff Moore and a documentary
Doing Virtuous Business is a documentary project presented by PBS. This one-hour program takes a modern look at ancient virtues once studied by Aristotle and many of the great minds in spiritual history and then examines how these deeply respected concepts and beliefs are practiced within a modern business environment.
The event will take the form of a debate with Ted presenting his ideas and the documentary and Geoff responding. The debate will then be open to questions and contributions from the floor.
Ted serves as Research Professor for the Spiritual Capital Initiative at Yale University. The documentary is based on his highly celebrated, best-selling book "Spiritual Enterprise: Doing Virtuous Business". He is also Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of The Roosevelt Group, a leading strategic management and leadership company. He has served on the executive board of the World Economic Forum; has held an ambassadorial level position at the United Nations in Geneva; and has sat on a number of corporate, mutual fund, and not-for-profit boards. Ted earned his Ph.D. in international political economy from the University of Toronto and took his B.A. from Gordon College and an M.Litt. from the University of Aberdeen.
Geoff is Professor of Business Ethics at Durham Business School, Durham University. His research includes work on Fair Trade, Corporate Social Responsibility and virtue ethics as applied to business organisations drawing particularly on the work of the moral philosopher Alasdair MacIntyre. He is a non-executive director on the Board of Traidcraft, the UK's leading Fair Trade organisation. Geoff graduated from Cambridge University with a BA in Engineering Science, and from Durham University with both an MSc in Management Studies and the degree of Doctor of Letters.
