Ethical Reading is run entirely by volunteers. Below you can see profiles of our current line-up, but we’re always looking for more people to get involved. If you would like to join our team as volunteer or Advisory Council member, or contribute in some other way, please get in touch.
Gurprit has over 30 years’ experience in computing and IT as a software engineer and as the consulting services Chief Technology Officer at Microsoft and Hewlett Packard across Europe, Middle east and Africa.
He has always been fascinated by philosophical questions and co-founded Ethical Reading after completing an ethics course. Gurprit is passionate about developing healthy and ethical workplaces where people are treated fairly, are shown and show respect in turn, have a clear social purpose and understand their responsibilities, duties and obligations to themselves and those around them.
Gurprit holds an MSc in Electronics from Southampton University and is a Fellow of the British Computer Society. He is married with three grown-up children and, in his spare time, enjoys long-distance running.

A true believer in the benefits of a ‘beyond profit’ culture, he is determined, along with his three daughters, to make a material impact in supporting society’s harmonious development.
Equally passionate about education, Antoine chairs the Finance & Audit Committee of Europa School UK, the only UK accredited European School, in Culham near Oxford.
He holds a Masters of Law and a Masters of Economics, both from the Panthéon-Assas University of Paris, and enjoys cooking, fine-line drawing and choir singing.
