On May 21, 2018, at Compliance Week 2018, I will moderate a panel, “Breaking Down Communication Barriers.” This panel will address how compliance leaders can get others in the organization, both those in leadership positions as well as on the frontline, to understand that ethics & compliance is everyone’s business? In this session, we’ll look at ways compliance leaders can better communicate and express themselves to ensure their messages are understandable and compact, while enduringly powerful. I will be joined by panelists, Jill Mason, Chief Compliance Officer – Orthofix, Catherine Muldoon, Chief Legal Officer – BDP International, and Seth Rice, Assistant General Counsel and Director, Office of Ethics and Compliance – Kennametal Corporation.

On Tuesday, August 7th at 11:30 – 12:30 p.m, in a session, titled “Rebuilding Your Reputation: From White Collar Crime to Industry Thought Leader,” Deirdre Breakenridge and I will lead this year’s Fireside Chat in an interview-based conversation. We’ll hear how I went from prison to blogger, to a global consultant, thanks largely to PR.
