I am pleased to announce the first Compliance Training Sessions to be offered in Brazil by Thomas Fox, the Compliance Evangelist. These compliance training sessions are unlike any other class currently being offered. They will be held in São Paulo and will be hosted by the law firm of Azevedo Sette Advogados. The focus of the compliance training will be on the operationalizing of compliance. For it is only in the doing of compliance that companies have a real chance of avoiding liability. There are two Parts to the Compliance Training Sessions. In Part 1, you will obtain an understanding of the basics of international anti-corruption and anti-bribery enforcement and in Part 2, you will learn the basics of a best practices’ compliance program. If you attend Parts 1 and 2, you are eligible to attend the Compliance Master Class on Thursday 7th November.

You walk away from the Compliance Training Session – Part 1 with a clear understanding of what anti-corruption compliance is and what it requires; an overview of international corruption initiatives and how they all relate to compliance; how best to deal with compliance and ethics issues which arise, internal investigations and trends in anti-bribery/anti-corruption enforcement across the globe.

You will walk away from the Compliance Training Session – Part 2 with a clear understanding of what anti-corruption compliance is and what it requires; how to deal with third parties, from initial introduction through contracting and managing the relationship, what should be included in your gifts, travel, entertainment (GTE) and hospitality policies; the conundrum of facilitation payments; charitable donations and political contributions, and trends in compliance.

The Compliance Training Sessions will be offered twice: Part 1 will be offered on Monday, 4th November from 9am to Noon and then again from 7-10pm. Part 2 will be offered on Tuesday, 5th November, from 2-5pm and then again from 7-10pm.

You can select the class schedule which best suits you.

The Compliance Master Class provides a unique opportunity for any level of compliance practitioner, from the seasoned Chief Compliance Officer (CCO) to the practitioner who is new to the compliance profession. If you are looking for a training class to turbocharge your knowledge on the nuts and bolts of a best practices compliance program going forward, this is the class for you to attend. You will have an intensive focus group of like-minded compliance practitioners with whom you can share best practices. It allows us to tailor the discussion to your needs.

As one of the leading commentators in the compliance space for several years, I will bring a unique insight of what many companies have done right and many have done not so well over the years. This professional experience has enabled me to put together a unique educational opportunity for any person interested in anti-corruption compliance. Armed with this information, at the conclusion of the Compliance Master Class, you will be able to implement or enhance your compliance program, with many ideas at little or no cost.

The Compliance Master Class will move from the theory of compliance into the doing of compliance and how you must document this work to create a best practices compliance program. Building from compliance best practices, you will learn the intricacies of root cause analysis; what should be included in your internal controls; the significance of risk assessments; internal investigations; and how to deal with 12 different compliance crises.

To attend the Compliance Master Class, you must have attended the initial two Compliance Training Sessions. Attendees of the Compliance Master Class will receive a complimentary copy of my book The Compliance Handbook (a $395 value). The Compliance Master Class will be held on Thursday, 7th November, from 9am to 4pm.

The cost is $150 USD for only either Part 1 OR Part 2. The price is $250 USD for both Parts 1 and 2. Attendees of Part 1 and 2 will be eligible to attend the Compliance Master Class, to be held on Thursday, 7th November, at a discounted price of  $400 USD.
