Compliance Week 2017 @ The Mayflower Hotel
May 22 – May 24 all-day
Compliance Week 2017 @ The Mayflower Hotel | Washington | District of Columbia | United States

I am honored to once again present at the Annual Compliance Week Washington DC Conference. On Monday, May 22, 2017, at 11:30, I will moderate a panel, Prevention and Profits: A Deep Dive Into Managing Incentive Programs.

Incentives are seen as integral to business and are a proven means to motivate employees to reach goals and commercial objectives. But incentives can have unintended and invisible side-effects by leading employees to bend the rules to the needs of forecasts, targets and quotas. In this session we’ll discuss how to index incentives and measures to ethical and commercial success, as well as the process – and role of the compliance officer – in revamping performance management systems, including overcoming opposition, communicating with employees, and maintaining business performance. Joining me will be Matthew D’Ambrosio, SVP, Chief Compliance and Ethics officer at Sunovion Pharmaceuticals Inc. as well as Michael Shaw, VP and compliance office for GlaxoSmithKline.

Antikorrupsjonskonferansen Oslo 2017 @ Felix Konferansesenter
Jun 8 – Jun 9 all-day
Antikorrupsjonskonferansen Oslo 2017 @ Felix Konferansesenter | Norway

This year I will address the 2017 Oslo Anticorruption Conference (Antikorrupsjonskonferansen). The Conference is a unique collaboration between ØKOKRIM,  Transparency International Norway, PwC, and Selmer. The conference focuses on international and national anti-corruption developments and will showcase the most important measures in the current anti-corruption work. The initiative will also contribute to strengthening cooperation between private companies, public sector, development organizations, NGOs and other relevant actors.

The anticorruption conference is organized for the fourth time on Thursday 8 and Friday 9 June 2017.  This year’s conference will, as in previous years, provide a unique insight into current corruption cases, risk development in selected areas, regulatory developments, and specific topics for specialization, debate and learning.

The conference wants to contribute to important anti-corruption competency issues,  and  is appropriate for representatives of all companies and organizations that face corruption challenges and working to prevent and detect corruption, including:

– Private sector
– public sector
– Non-governmental activities (NGO)
– Welfare / aid organizations

The conference is non-profit and all proceeds from the conference will cover the costs associated with implementation. Anticorruption Conference offers professional expertise, inspiration and facilitates networking across sectors.
