WTCTA Monthly Breakfast Series Speaker
Think Globally, Act Ethically / Dr. Chris Gilbert

$10 for WTC Members / $15 for non-members

Think Globally, Act Ethically aims to address the global circumstance of an increasingly interdependent world that is finding that local convictions and national sovereignty are outdated concepts. Dr. Gilbert will lead the conversation, and discuss the idea that moral behavior and ethical decision making are rooted in universal principles for our mutual gain. The presentation will also concentrate on the view that we are all, despite or because of our choices, interconnected.

This interactive presentation highlights the remarkable transformation occurring in personal and professional life as ethical decision making takes deeper root through a rising global consciousness based on values of mutual respect and moral progress.

Dr. Christopher Gilbert is Executive Director of the Northwest Center for Ethics Training and Development (NWCETD). He was also a principal in forming the newly initiated TCC Center for Ethical Development in Washington State. Dr. Gilbert has 20 years of consulting experience, now serving as primary consultant for the NWCETD which specializes in ethics and values development, business conduct and social responsibility training, principled leadership, team-building, consultation and value-driven negotiation processes. Dr. Gilbert has been an ethics and values development motivational speaker at a host of European, Asian and national venues. He has also served as Graduate Faculty in the MBA Programs of Beijing University of Technology in China, Landegg International University in Switzerland and the University of Washington, Tacoma. His new book, There's No Right Way to Do the Wrong Thing, is slated for publication this fall.
