About the Author

HENRI-CLAUDE DE BETTIGNIES is the Distinguished Professor of Globally Responsible Leadership at the China Europe International Business School (CEIBS), in Shanghai, China, where he has created the Euro-China Centre for Leadership and Responsibility (ECCLAR). He is also the AVIVA Chair Emeritus Professor of Leadership and Responsibility and Emeritus Professor of Asian Business at INSEAD. Between 1988 and 2005, with a joint appointment at Stanford University (Graduate School of Business), he shared his time equally between Europe, California and the Asia Pacific region. Professor de Bettignies started the development of the Ethics initiative at INSEAD, and pioneered a new approach (AVIRA) to enlighten business leaders. Over a 16 year period the AVIRA programme brought together 900 Chairmen and CEOs from 60 countries, keen to enrich their vision and enhance their responsible leadership competence. Henri-Claude teaches MBAs, E-MBAs and executives at CEIBS, in the areas of ethics and CSR, HR management and corporate transformation, culture and management. He directs a number of executive (public or corporate) programmes in Europe and in Asia.
