Hard Sell – The Ethics of Marketing

If television’s The Gruen TransferChoice magazine and the endless flow of on-line complaints are anything to go by, the marketing world is rife with unethical behaviour.

Indeed, a growing global body of research into corporate responsibility is revealing a deep undercurrent of public distrust. So how have we reached this point and, most importantly, can it change?

In this controversial presentation, University of Adelaide marketing and consumer behaviour expert Professor Pascale Quester dissects the many ethical dilemmas faced by marketers on a daily basis.

She also offers a variety of perspectives that could improve the morality of their decisions, and discuss the critical role to be played by “ethical consumers”.
