Northern Lights: Bucking the trend for an ethical leadership as a matter of pride

There have been a number of headlines recently, such as the VW scandal and BHS’s difficulties, that seem to demonstrate that, nowadays, more and more companies and their leaders display a lack of integrity.  So, with this in mind, how prevalent is a lack of integrity in business?

Column: Hoping local voices not ignored

Having turned their back on a Sheffield City Region deal worth £900m and £30m per year for the next 10 years, both Barnsley and Doncaster are now committed to a potentially meaningless referendum experiment to secure views of “the people” for a Yorkshire deal that the Government has already rebuked – costing the tax payer in excess of a £100,000.

Favourite Things: Born near the coast, drawn to the countryside

Chairman of Sheffield Talking News, Mary Callaghan, was brought up in Colchester, Essex, and says although she was close to the coast, she much preferred the countryside even though it was only slightly undulating. So, soon after starting a career as a secondary school teacher, she was drawn to the North and, Sheffield in particular, because of the proximity of the Peak District.

Whilst I can see why people could be seduced with a Yorkshire wide deal – particularly those in power, I have to ask why Barnsley and Doncaster didn’t ask the same question of the people, before they arbitrarily turned their back on the £900m Sheffield City Region deal.
