He is spending a lot of time currently on the responsible business platform which he feels qualified to talk about having observed the benefits of it at first-hand. He has written several books the most well-known being The Richer Way, published in 1995 and now in its sixth edition, and his latest book The Ethical Capitalist launched in 2018 to promote responsible capitalism which has received favourable reviews.
