The Ethics Of Ethics Consultancy I

ABC's New South Wales Stateline ran a piece, 'Iemma's Dilemmas' (14th October), were Dr Simon Longstaff was interviewed in regards to Former Premier Bob Carr's recent employment by Macquarie Bank.

A slight controversy has since developed regarding an undisclosed conflict of interest - Dr Longstaff's St James Ethics Centre is sponsored by Macquarie - that led to a second interview with Dr Longstaff (screened last Friday, the transcript had not been posted at time of writting).

A question regarding the nature of the developing area of 'ethics consulting' is taking shape ... Will elaborate when the relevant transcript is available.

Dear Sir/Madam
I am currently undertaking an MSc in ADMIS (Analysis, Design and Management of Information Systems) at LSE. As part of my course requirements I will be investigating the extent to which web promotion techniques have been incorporated into the management consultancy practice as well as the importance such an integration of practices is.
I would benefit from the opinions of industry specialists, thus I am publishing my work on my blog ( and would like to encourage you to visit it.
Thank you for your time
Michael Zarb
