Why professionalism is still relevant

January 28, 2010

Some months ago Don Larkin, President of Professions Australia, asked if I would share my thoughts on professionalism in today’s world with him. Don’s invitation and a serendipitous visit to Oxford University led me to write this essay on why I believe the professions are still relevant, but threatened, in our society. It is written from a global perspective and in some ways represents a personal philosophy.



I hope you find the work thought-provoking.
