Jan and Paul welcome Distinguished Professor Linda Hendry to talk about an area that affects tens of millions of people worldwide - modern slavery.

Linda's work looks at modern slavery in company supply chains. It takes in the impacts - good and bad - of legislation, how companies are responding to issues, and how businesses work together to improve practice and modern slavery detection. There is also accounting, to Jan's delight.
