Bill Coffin is Editor in Chief of Ethisphere. Ethisphere is dedicated to promoting standards of ethical business practice, specifically those which encourage marketplace trust and business success and is known for its annual report on the World’s Most Ethical Companies, and its 100 Most Influential People in Business Ethics.

Bill was previously Editor in Chief of Compliance Week and has a special understanding of finance having worked for some of the largest insurance companies in the world.

His writing has appeared in all the major financial publications, including the Wall Street Journal, Forbes, and Fortune, and he has received an arm load of journalistic awards, but intriguingly Bill also has a second career – he’s a successful fantasy author, most notably of the Dark Britannia Trilogy and is the creator of a number of fantasy role play games.

On this episode of Outside In, Bill talks with Jon about compliance and the science of ethics, his double life as a successful fantasy author, his marvellous gesture for an injured comic book writer and role-playing the impossible moments that we face in life. They also discuss the cross pollination between the fantasy role-playing worlds and morals, ethics and power in the real world.
