This month we shall watch an interview with  Baron Hastings of Scarisbrick CBE, an independent Peer in the House of Lords. Michael is a Trustee of the Vodafone Group Foundation and a Vice President of UNICEF and Tear Fund. He is President of Zane and Chairman of Millennium Promise. In 2005 he received the UNICEF award for his 'outstanding contribution to understanding and effecting solutions for Africa's children'.

In 2003 he received a CBE for his work on crime prevention. In 2006 HM The Queen awarded Michael with a Life Peerage. He works for KPMG International.

In this interview he insightfully answers questions on corporate citizenship, faith and life.
