Entrepreneur, CEO and author Margaret Heffernan was on BBC Radio 4’s ‘Four Thought’ at the RSA (Royal Society for the encouragement of Arts, Manufactures and Commerce) in London.
Please visit the BBC Radio website to listen to her excellent talk.
She challenges the negative view of whistle-blowers and argues that people who speak up on uncomfortable truths are vital to a company’s success.
She states that when observing any major institutional failure, ‘you will find not ignorance but wilful blindness, a condition in which the truth is visible, knowable and available but studiously ignored’.
Margaret’s book ‘Willful Blindness: Why We Ignore the Obvious at Our Peril’ was shortlisted for the Financial Times and Goldman Sachs Business Book of the Year Award in 2011.
