John W.H. Denton, CEO and Partner, Corrs Chambers Westgarth - "The role of business in shaping the future of policy, society and national relationships"
- 16 August 2013
CEO and Partner of Corrs Chambers Westgarth, John W.H. Denton, provided members with a provocative key note address at this Sydney Catholic Business Network luncheon, musing on the role of business in shaping the future of policy, society and national relationships. With his considerable experience in the legal, business and global policy fields, Mr Denton made it clear from the outset that this topic is anything but straight forward and that it invites some controversy. From both a national and international perspective, Mr Denton’s address considered the right of business to participate in the shaping of public policy, while also providing an intellectual and a theological basis for business right in so doing. All of which left the audience to ponder - a capitalist society, able to maintain its moral integrity, needn’t be a utopian dream; it can still be achievable through a concerted and conscious effort from all involved.
