Forget the Dragons, it’s time to bring on the business world’s tigers at Sheffield Business School.

The Sheffield Hallam University-based organisation is hosting a TIGERoadshow, with a panel of distinguished speakers who will discuss Trust and Integrity in the Global Economy – or TIGE.

Business School visiting professor and Government Construction Strategy Team member Dr John Carlisle invited the roadshow to Sheffield.

Roadshow organiser Mike Smith said: “Businesses, social enterprises, banks and organisations need to operate with the values of integrity, including honesty and transparency, if they are going to build trust in society and with all their stakeholders, including customers. Integrity helps to build markets in a difficult economic climate.

“The TIGERoadshow will highlight what these values of integrity should be, through case-study story telling.”

Speakers will include best-selling business author Margaret Heffernan, whose book Wilful Blindness was shortlisted by the Financial Times as one of the best business books of 2011.

Other speakers will be Tony Bradley, director of the Social and Ethical Enterprise Development Centre at Liverpool Hope University’s School of Business, Rikki Griffiths, HSBC Bank area commercial director for Liverpool, and Roddy Edwards, co-founder of Walkerswood Caribbean Foods in Jamaica.

The TIGERoadshow will be on Thursday, September 12.
