SPEAKERS

Sir Mark Moody-Stuart

To say that Sir Mark Moody-Stuart has a history of leadership would be a far cry from the reality. Former chairman of Shell and Anglo American PLC, current chairman of Hermes Equity Ownership Services and the Foundation for the United Nations’ Global Compact and current director of Saudi Aramco, Mark Moody-Stuart has an interest in ethical, responsible leadership. He also has the platform and experience to explore and develop these ideas. He has written a book on Responsible Leadership: Lessons From the Front Line of Sustainability and Ethics, worked all over the world—from Nigeria and Spain to Oman, Brunei and Turkey—and now he comes to St Andrews to discuss the ethics of good governance.

 

  Anton Earle    Anton Earle directs the Africa Regional Centre (ARC) in Pretoria, South Africa. The ARC is an initiative of the Stockholm International Water Institute (SIWI), a project with dreams of efficient, equitable and sustainable water infrastructure on a global scale. Anton Earle offers a new perspective on the linkage between good governance and complete water access: in real, non-abstract terms, how does corruption impact investment and water infrastructure in countries across the continent? How does something so basic and seemingly harmless create inter-governmental conflict, even war? What are the roles of the ARC in the midst of this complexity and what sets them apart? Anton Earle is here to share.

  Deo Niyizonkiza    “We take good health for granted, even in a place, like Burundi, where health indicators are abysmal. It’s very hard – even unimaginable – to think about how a mother who is pregnant and who is carrying a heavy load on her head and on her back can be fully productive.” This is Deo Niyizonkiza’s message: “where there is health, there is hope”.   Having escaped war in Burundi, having escaped homelessness in America, Deo Niyizonkiza graduated from Columbia University with a bachelor's degree in biochemistry and philosophy and later continued his studies at the Harvard School of Public Health and Dartmouth Medical School. He is an inspiration, providing holistic clinical treatment and prevention services at the Village Health Works' Sharon McKenna Community Health Center. Now he works at the Village Health Works' clinic and their developmental model has grown to include educational activities, agricultural and environmental protection programmes and income-generating cooperatives.                                                          Photo by : Alex Massek - Ampersand Media
