RSA Fellows, Norwich Quakers and Norwich Cathedral are collaborating to stage a debate on Tuesday 3rd October at 6pm at OPEN Norwich. Discover why doing business ethically really can pay.

Commercial pressure has too often been cited as justification for unethical business behaviour. Yet increasingly, consumers are choosing to do business with those they believe to be ethical. What exactly is ethical business? How can we influence it as business leaders or as consumers?

Come and join us to hear from a wide range of speakers and a panel debate.
