Integrity and doing the right thing. Your invitation.

The director of the US Office of Government Ethics has criticised Donald Trump's plan to hand control of his business empire to his sons before his inauguration on 20 January. The plan does not match the "standards" of US presidents over the last 40 years, Walter Shaub said. A Trump lawyer said earlier the new trust would face "severe restrictions" on new deals. But Mr Shaub said the plan would not remove conflicts of interest.

What will 2017 hold for integrity? It seems that every second news report impugns the ethical credentials of the President-elect. We are holding an open session at 0845 on 21 February 2017* to talk about the FCA Conduct Rule which states "You must act with integrity". Integrity in financial services, in employment, in public office, and in life is fundamentally about moral standards. Where is the bar? Can it move? And who decides whether the "standards" have been met? Please join us in the conversation.

This session is free of charge. Please contact francesca.hand@byrnedean.com to book your place.

*Our session on 21 February is now full. Due to popular demand, we are re-running this session on 22 February 0845-1000.
