PROFESSOR Martin Prozesky will be the next speaker at the Friends' Forum talk on Wednesday 13 April at 6pm in the Kloof Junior Primary School hall.

The subject of his talk will be "ethics and sport". Tickets are available at Kloof Library and cost R35 for members of Friends or R50 for non-members.

Prozesky is the founding director of Compass Ethics CC, which provides training and other resources in various areas of applied ethics. He is also an Emeritus Professor of the University of KwaZulu-Natal, from which he took early retirement in 2007 as senior professor of Comparative and Applied Ethics.

He joined the staff of the former University of Natal, Pietermaritzburg in 1977 as a senior lecturer, and was the founding director of its Unilever Ethics Centre from 1997 until his early retirement.

Before moving to Pietermaritzburg he lectured at Rhodes University and the former University of Rhodesia, besides working in the publishing business from 1970 to 1971. His university education took place at Rhodes University (BA 1966) and the University of Oxford (MA 1973), followed by graduate studies at Cambridge, Massachusetts and by a Doctor of Philosophy degree from the University of Rhodesia in 1977.

His first book was published in London and New York in 1984 and led to his current work in ethics. On the basis of his research he was made a Fellow of the former University of Natal. He is the author of four other books and co-author or co-editor of four more, besides writing many academic papers and well over 150 press articles. Prozesky’s current work includes accountancy and ethics, religion and ethics, sports ethics and professional ethics. His latest book - Conscience: Ethical Intelligence for Global Well-Being - appeared in 2007 from the University of KwaZulu-Natal Press. He is also the editor and a co-author of Ethics for Accountants and Auditors (revised edition, Cape Town, Oxford University Press, 2009).

From 1991 to 1995 he was Dean of the Faculty of Humanities at the Pietermaritzburg campus. He has been a frequent speaker at conferences and seminars in various countries, and has often addressed schools, businesses and other audiences.
