“Roger has helped me consider business decisions from a fresh perspective. His approach might be rooted in philosophy, but in reality it is about pragmatic, profitable yet principled management of a business for long-term success.”
Joe Garner, CEO, Nationwide Building Society
“In his excellent book Ethicability, Roger Steare argues for a more sophisticated interpretation of integrity in business – one that is not simply defined by the ethics of obedience – so what is legally right or wrong – but actually looks towards the ethics of care and the ethics of reason.”
Martin Wheatley, CEO, Financial Conduct Authority
“Roger is a lighthouse, in thick fog, in the middle of a zombie apocalypse
