Your Future In Global Markets International Business Conference @ Hilton Lac Leamy
Oct 2 – Oct 4 all-day
Your Future In Global Markets International Business Conference @ Hilton Lac Leamy  | Gatineau | Québec | Canada

Today’s global business environment means having the right team in place to recognize and act on opportunities and mitigate risks, ensuring commercial success and increasing profit margins. Learn how to build your team, act on the latest trends, technology and policies, and plan your future in global markets at the “Your Future in Global Markets 2017 International Business Conference,”  presented by FITT.

On October 4th,  I will engage in a discussion on “A View from both sides: Why Corruption Happens and How to Shut It Down,”  where I will share my experiences and offer important lessons on identifying, mitigating and corruption risk. Learn the dangers of how policies and incentives can create conflicting messages to employees, and how to reconnect and re-engage with employees before a crisis hits.

Presented with Sgt. Pat Poitevin, senior investigator with the RCMP, I will explore both sides of these  contentious issues, and offer a unique opportunity to answer questions in this special Q&A. Everyone, no matter the title or job function, will take something new away from this presentation. The full event site can be found here: https://shrtm.nu/uBza
