Navex once again scores a huge win with this year’s version of its annual online conference. This year myself, along with several of the top commentators in compliance, will be participating in NAVEX Global’s 2017 Ethics & Compliance Virtual Conference on Thursday, November 9. This year the conference is focused on “Igniting a Winning Workplace Culture,” and will offer more than 20 hours of compliance education driven by more than 30 cross-industry thought leaders. I am honored to be one of them. I hope you will join me. The best part of this online event; the conference is free to attend and registration is now open.

During the conference, content sessions will be structured along three learning tracks focused on Leading for the Future, Investing in Corporate Culture, and Aligning Corporate Risk & Resolution. There will also be experts on hand to answer questions, and a curated resource library for continued learning with definitive guides and reports. Winning cultures do not happen accidentally – purpose-driven GRC influencers navigate them and this conference delivers you those speakers.

There will be over 20 hours of virtual education to learn at your own pace with your won learning experience, in your own space with some of the top minds in the ethics and compliance landscape. Some of the content includes: Using a Risk Assessment to Build an Effective Compliance Program; The Top 5 Privacy Concerns CCOs Should Care About; It’s a Regulation Whirlwind, Designing a Program That Withstands; Measuring Compliance Program Effectiveness; Creating a Best Practice Whistleblower Program to Reinforce a Positive Culture; A Layered Approach to Third-Party Due Diligence.

The Keynote speaker include Opening Keynote Speaker, Shankar Vedantam, the host of NPR’s popular podcast, The Hidden Brain who will talk on “The Psychology of Ethical Behavior: Mastering the Science of Compliance”. He will explore how a strong ethical culture manifests itself in the moments when employees make the right choices in the face of ethical dilemmas. Yet does that ethical decision making just happen, or is there something beneath the surface at work here? Vedantam will look at the psychology of workplace behavior and how the culture we try so hard to cultivate is often driven by the unconscious. Tune into this session to learn what motivates otherwise honest people to make exceptions of themselves when it comes to ethical choices. It will also explore group dynamics and pinpoint some of the active, intentional steps Compliance can take to shape culture and mitigate negative group behavior. Finally, it will discuss the psychology of an effective compliance officer and what fuels them to be great at their job.

The always-popular Kristy Grant-Hart will join us to explain how any compliance officer can spend his or her time investigating hotline calls, negotiating with regulators, and assessing third parties. And many do exactly that. Yet true goal, however – for both your career, and your organization – is to run a compliance program that makes the organization better.

She will focus on how compliance officers themselves can be effective: how to set priorities for your compliance program and achieve them, even amid the daily demands trying to pull you away from those achievements. She will explore how a CCO can set strategic goals, and work with other parts of the enterprise to ensure those goals are understood and respected. By scheduling your time, dealing with crises, finding resources and deploying them astutely are critical and Kristy will help us to understand how to master them.

For the nuts and bolts type of you out there, the event will feature two boot camps tracks each hour. The topics include: Getting the Tech Right: What CCOs Need to Do; Right People, Right Place: Creating a Compliance A-Team for Your Organization; What I Wish I Would Have Known When I Started in the Role; Cultures that Inspire Both Ethics & Performance; Risk Radar: Compliance Risks to Keep Track of in 2018; and CCO Evolution: 4 Steps to Becoming a Strategic Partner.

I am thrilled to join Nadège Dallais, Counsel, Baker & McKenzie and Yindi Gesinde, Senior Associate, Baker McKenzie for a panel discussion on Aligning Corporate Risk & Resolution. This year has seen an immense amount of legislative activity across the globe around standardizing effective anti-bribery and anti-corruption compliance programs. These developments stem from the Department of Justice’s guidance in the U.S., to Sapin II in France, to updates to the UK Bribery Act. This session will give you an overview of the recent legislative changes and recommendations on how to build a program that not only addresses these regulations, but also addresses your organizations risk profile.
