Fabulous to present my work at the FINT conference on trust research in the lovely Swiss setting of St. Gallen. Great questions and comments #gruezifint2019; @iccs_bham.

The conference was hailed a great success, bringing together a rich disciplinary mix of Business Studies, Management and International Relations to address the challenging issue of developing and retaining trust in the modern global world.
