I was going through my messy ‘Desktop’ and found my speech note that I used on 1st May 2014 @ Macquarie University.
One day you will face the moment when you must make a choice – One path that leads to your success and prosperity at the cost of others; and one path that leads to success and prosperity of others at the cost of your own (aka sacrifice).
One day someone might ask you to do something which is completely illegal, but will give you a substantial return.
One day you have no choice but to do what your boss says, because your job will be on the line if you fail to comply, despite the fact that you know what he asks of you is morally wrong.
The purpose of sharing the BPO, how it is perceived in general, and the dark side of corporate social responsibility today with you is
– To simulate fear;
– Fear in the face of certain unavoidable outcomes; and
– To accept that consequence, and maintain control of yourself and make the right decision that leads to success and prosperity of others.
This is the quality expected in every Macquarie University graduate like yourself, and I believe that you must have that quality.
Good luck to you all and thank you very much for listening.
