Professor A.C. Grayling CBE

One Of The Most Influential Thinkers Of The Age

Anthony Grayling is Master of the New College of the Humanities and a Fellow of St Anne’s, Oxford. Whether addressing business ethics, international relations or the difference between true leadership and manipulation, he is one of the most influential thinkers of our times – and a compelling speaker for corporate audiences.

Anthony believes in philosophical debate that deals with real issues, not least when it comes to the need for companies to be profitable. He shows how business ethics challenge us to ask who we are, and what standards we share. It asks us to behave with consistency and determination (literally to be good citizens of the business community), but although the value of this speaks for itself it’s also clear that “the return on the invisible investment is very real.”

Grayling has written and edited numerous books, exploring almost everything from the rise of China to education, the ethics of war and blogging. Published articles include a comparison of Peter Mandelson and Simon Cowell, and for several years he wrote the Last Word column for The Guardian. He also writes for The Economist and remains Contributing Editor of Prospect.

Anthony Grayling is a Fellow of the World Economic Forum and a member of its C-100 group on relations between the West and the Islamic world. He is also a Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts and a former Booker Prize judge.
