Strategic Governance, Risk & Reputation News
February 28, 2015

It's been a non-stop busy season for us at GEC Risk since the year started. We hope it's been a great year for all of you so far as well!

Last week, my colleague, friend and partner, Jacqueline E. Brevard, and I co-taught our first cohort of students at the brand new NYU Certificate in Corporate Compliance & Ethics and it was an outstanding experience with participants from all over the world.

Our methodology covers the elements of an effective global ethics and compliance program in a deeply interactive, diverse setting that connects what we do directly back to organizational strategy. 

We will be teaching our next NYU Corporate Compliance & Ethics Certificate cohort June 22-26, 2015. For further information and to register please click here:

The next month is jam-packed as well: 
  1. On Wednesday the 4th, I will be a co-panelist at Crain's Risk Management Summit in NYC speaking on corruption and reputation risk. See sidebar announcement. 
  2. On Thursday the 5th, Hiperos is sponsoring a terrific complimentary webinar on "Making the Strategic Business Case for Third Party Management" with luminary panelists (see events sidebar). This is part of a series of thought leadership webinars and white papers Hiperos and GEC Risk are collaborating on this year. Please register and stay tuned to this newsletter for the related white papers.
  3. GEC Risk is sponsoring (and I will be speaking at) the next Global Ethics Summit in NYC on a panel on "Operating in a High Risk Environment". GEC Risk friends and clients can get a 20% discount on this conference by using the code GECRisk20. This will be at the heels of the Ethisphere 100 Most Ethical Companies gala dinner to be held on March 9th. I hope to see many of you at either or both the Gala and the Summit!
Take a look at and register for the upcoming Conference Board conference I am designing and running May 6-7, 2015 in NYC: Our first "Annual Global Risk, Integrity & Reputation" Conference will feature cross-disciplinary approaches to all things risk, integrity and reputation. We have a magificent cross-section of experts, authors, luminaries and practitioners for what promises to be an outside the box learning experience.

Got to run, too much to do.

All the best for a great March!
