Forum to Be Held April 26-28 in Coral Gables, Fla.

BETHESDA, MD – (April 23, 2015) – Consero Group, an international leader in hosting high-level, invitation-only events for senior executives, today announced the April 2015 Corporate Compliance & Ethics Forum to be held April 26 – 28 at The Biltmore Miami Coral Gables in Coral Gables, Fla. The upcoming Forum will address how to approach risk reduction universally, as well as other challenges facing executives today.

“In today’s regulatory environment, global businesses increasingly recognize the need to focus on compliance, leading to a more prominent role for Chief Compliance Officers,” said Paul Mandell, Founder & CEO of Consero. “Consero’s April 2015 Corporate Compliance & Ethics Forum will address the growing demands facing today’s Chief Compliance Officers, providing an opportunity to share best practices and innovative ideas to help them make compliance skills an enterprise-wide capability.”

“The Forum will explore what programs, procedures, and communications are especially effective in risk-reduction efforts,” said Jessica Druckman, Founder & SVP of Program Development at Consero. “We will explore top-of-mind issues, including what risks lie beyond the increased costs of global anti-corruption investigations and prosecutions, whether certain risks go hand-in-hand, and how to hold third parties accountable for compliance.”

Additional topics will include:

  • Communicating and Evangelizing a Culture of Compliance: This session will address how to help a company define “compliance,” as well as how reporting structure (Board, Audit Committee, General Counsel) can affect a company’s independence.
  • Middle Management: The Vanguard of Compliance Leadership: In this session, executives will explore middle management’s role in communicating a company’s Corporate Code of Conduct in diverse markets, as well as best practices for ethics training and making ethical behavior a key element of the company’s culture.
  • Understanding and Mitigating Third-Party Risk: This session will identify the elements and mechanics of a credible third-party risk-sorting model that controls cost and satisfies regulatory expectations, along with effective and sustainable methods of performing ongoing post-engagement third-party due diligence.
