This highly-focused, content-rich program paves the way to navigate the latest industry trends and compliance hurdles facing IA teams in an ever-changing, complex and rigorous reporting environment.
 
 On Friday October 4th, 2019, at 9:00 am, I will give a keynote presentation titled: “A Journey to the Dark Side of International Business — Steps to Protect Your Organization.”

As shared in the brochure, “Hear a firsthand and clear-eyed behavioral view of how bribery is rationalized on the front-lines of business and operations. Kick off the day’s discussion with a unique perspective encapsulating over a decade of experience with how bribery is confronted at the front lines of business, to bring value to current anti-bribery initiatives and third- party corruption risk mitigation. This real-life experience offers key learnings and insights into the other side of the FCPA and anti-bribery equation. This session will address the following questions:

  •  Is your compliance program calibrated to the real-world behavioral risk, which front-line personnel face in their work?
  • Does a risk-based compliance program miss real-world risk?
  • How can business leaders be inspired to become compliance champions?
