Today’s guest in my integrity talk is Werner Schiesser.

He looks back to an executive career in the field of professional services for more than 40 years and he now focuses on his different board functions as chairman or member in several – very interesting companies mainly located in Switzerland.

Get insights when we talk about the expectations he has when he trusts external advisors and what kind of red flags he sees in that specific industry when it comes to integrity.

Just a few highlights of our conversation with Werner:

For corporate integrity, absolute key is the tone at the top.

The main mistake is that some rules do not apply to those at the top.

If you only run from quarter to quarter, that’s not the way to do sustainability. It’s not the way to do corporate integrity. That’s not the way.
