How to be Good?
Date(s) - 11/10/2018
6:45 pm - 9:00 pm
To be a good doctor means more than just being good at medicine. Technical excellence is only part of any profession’s definition of goodness. But how, in today’s world, how do you work out what goodness means in your profession?
A founding principal of the Ely Cathedral Business Group is that there’s ‘more to business than profit’. But what is ‘good’ business? At our Celebration of Business exhibition and reception in April this year Lord Bird MBE of the Big Issue described ‘good’ business as ‘where every pound spent improves someone’s life’.
In an open-forum under the awe inspiring Ely Cathedral Octagon speakers from the Cathedral’s own How to be Good series with will compare notes, and bring together the insights and findings of the whole six sessions in a wide-ranging debate on the rules, the responsibilities, the potential and the pitfalls of their work.
We’ll also be joined by Mike Bushore who will discuss the challenges of programming ethical responses into robots deployed in the futures market on the trading floor. Mike Bushore is the CEO and Board Director at Tyler Capital, a London-based trading firm, focused on the systematic application of machine learning to the global financial markets. Mike is the architect of the firm’s global strategy, oversees performance management for the group, assists in the product design of the machine-learning agent, and coordinates trading and operations for the firm.
