Dennis Gentilin is the Founding Director of Human Systems Advisory, a research based consulting firm that believes the majority of conduct issues within organisations are not caused by ineffective formal systems, but rather by ineffective human systems. It is by strengthening their human systems that organisations not only increase their ethical resilience, but create the conditions that feed future prosperity.

Dennis has had over 15 years’ experience in the financial services industry where he held a number of senior roles in financial markets and corporate strategy. Early in his career he was publicly named as a “whistleblower” in a FX trading scandal, an incident that was the catalyst for his interest in human and organisational behaviour.

Dennis is the author of The Origins of Ethical Failure, a book that won the textbook category in the 2017 U.K. Chartered Management Institute Management Book of the Year award. He has appeared on the BBC’s Business Matters program and contributes to a variety of blogs, newspapers and journals both in Australia and overseas on the topics of ethics, leadership and organisational purpose.

Dennis is an honorary fellow at the Centre for Ethical Leadership and holds degrees in psychology and banking and finance.

“ There are no simple answers in this book. But there are answers. And there are important truths, supported by deep and rigorous analysis. These should be of interest to all corporate leaders, in both executive and non-executive roles. ”
