How is public interest determined and monitored; do professional bodies and professionals walk the talk? Is the changing nature of professional partnerships likely to have an impact on the public interest role of the professions? Professional service firms and professionals – success criteria: is it all about profit per partner and ruthless commercialism? Community and society contributions – is pro bono work on an admirable scale or a token gesture for annual reports? How do we inculcate the right attitudes, behaviour and sense of responsibility from the outset in professionals? How best to regulate professionals; how is this evolving? 


A panel discussion, with Gavin Ingham Brooke, Richard Chaplin, Hilary Lindsay and chaired by Professor Michael Mainelli.
