Brian Klaas Corruptible - who gets power and how it changes us

Wednesday 4 May 2022

Crowne Plaza Hotel

Does power corrupt, or are corrupt people drawn to power? Are entrepreneurs who embezzle and cops who kill the outgrowths of bad systems or are they just bad people? Are tyrants made or born? If you were thrust into a position of power, would new temptations to line your pockets or torture your enemies gnaw away at you until you gave in? The Professor of Global Politics at University College London draws on over 500 interviews with some of the world's noblest and dirtiest leaders, from presidents and philanthropists to rebels, cultists, and dictators to make you challenge basic assumptions about how you can rise to become a leader and what might happen to your head when you get there.
