The Institute is a not-for-profit organisation based in London which helps organisations in many countries develop and implement business ethics policies and programmes. He has published numerous studies on all aspects of business ethics, the most recent being: Employee Views of Ethics at Work: British Survey (2012). Religious Practices in the Workplace (2011) and Corporate Ethics Policies and Programmes (2011). He has lectured and facilitated training on business ethics issues for organisations in many countries. Simon is a member of the ICC’s Commission on Corporate Responsibility and Anti-corruption and the British Standards Institute’s (BSI) Anti Bribery Standard’s Panel. He has a Masters degree in economics and political science from Trinity College, Dublin. He joined Reed International (now Reed Elsevier) as a research economist in 1959. From 1969 until 1998, he was British Director of the British-North American Committee.

In March 2012, Graham established his own consultancy and now utilises his skills developing risk management strategies designed to build company resilience to risk. Graham believes that managing security-associated risk effectively is a key requirement of an organisation’s success and professional standing. In an age of corporate responsibility, regulation, controls, and company reputation, he also recognises the importance in building resilience to risk, so that it becomes integral to the way companies and major corporations conduct business. In establishing a feeling of wellbeing, it also enables organisations to operate with confidence, whilst contributing significantly to the bottom line by minimising asset loss and disruption to business operations. Working constantly to remove the misconception that managing security risk simply concerns cameras overseeing the car park and security officers managing the entrances to the site, Graham’s view involves taking a much more holistic and risk-based approach. In ensuring any response is proportionate and appropriate to business needs, he firmly believes that resilience strategies should include competency in the management of physical assets and people, fraud risk, due diligence processes for employment, acquisitions, partnerships and supply chains, managing crises, the security of businesses and people operating in high–risk places and the increasing risk of bribery and corruption. In relation to the latter, Graham’s experience was gained from playing a leading role in establishing ‘adequate procedures’ required by the latest legislation for his former employer Centrica. Graham’s philosophy has been recognised as innovative and best practice by many major corporations in the energy sector and is reflected in the contribution he made to a book produced by the government think tank DEMOS, entitled Corporate Security for the 21st Century – The Business of Resilience. Graham has spoken nationally and internationally on the subject of business resilience and business ethics and has worked with industry forums on helping to develop solutions to risk on behalf of the energy sector and the UK Government.
