Day 1:   Monday, 20th May
  • Opening Keynote - Ethics In Action

    General Session

    Global organisations are realising that becoming more ethical directly impacts their bottom line. While they realise that driving ethics to the centre of their business is the goal, few understand how to operationalise ethics on a daily basis with their employees. In this keynote Patrick Quinlan will discuss the global business climate and how innovation is providing new insights and opportunities for companies to improve their ethical performance and their bottom line.

  • Are you Making a Difference? Measuring Programmes, Culture and Values

    General Session

    How can organisations measure the performance of their ethics and compliance programme? Crucially, how do those measures embrace culture and values – and show how our function is genuinely ‘making a difference’ to the organisation? For example, some organisations might have useful data, but don’t necessarily put it together in a way that will identify issues, challenges and opportunities. Learn techniques and insights around programme measurement and how to achieve ‘demonstrable’ ethics and compliance – and the vital benefits that predictive analytics and measurement can bring.

  • People, it’s About People: Compliance, Ethics – and Humanity

    General Session

    Have you looked at the classic hotline intake form? Do we really expect an employee that is in a highly distressed and emotional state, worried about retaining their jobs, to readily engage with hotline processes? Learn approaches and innovations to bring the humanity back into compliance as well as how organisations are leveraging emotion and passion to drive engagement.

  • The Power of Innovation

    General Session

    The focus of this keynote will be on leveraging data to get more valuable insights into the ethical health of your company. Philip will illustrate how companies can advance from simple monitoring of activities (e.g. investigations and hotline reports) to conducting strategic analysis leveraging data science and Convercent’s Ethics Cloud applications. Through data science, leaders will be able to gain a new perspective on their programmes by leveraging data within the Convercent application, third party industry data, and outside data from social channels.

  • Innovation in Action

    General Session

    We’re smack in the midst of a drastic shift in compliance—more than an evolution, it’s a revolution. That means ethics and compliance finally has information about and influence over strategic decisions. It means defining the value of compliance beyond check boxes and risk registers. What does this look like in practice, and what does it mean for compliance executives? Hear from a group of visionary and strategic focused leaders who explore:

    • Leveraging Data Science to advance from simple monitoring of activities to strategic analysis with valuable business insights
    • Engaging your employees with the ethics and compliance programme. becoming part of the fabric of your company’s culture
    • Learning from Behavioural Science to identify the drivers of misconduct and use nudges to deliver pro-ethical behaviour
  • Networking Break

  • Ethical Behaviours: The Role of Nudge

    In order to design an effective compliance programme that nudges employees to act with integrity, you need an understanding of basic human psychology and behaviour. In this session, E&C leaders will dive into the overall concept of Behavioural Science, including information about persuasion, anchoring, and other applicable theories and share how they have leveraged it across their programme.

  • A Compliance Failure: How Honest Executives can end up in Prison

    Keith’s story is a fascinating exposé of how unwittingly an honest person can fall afoul of international regulators and shockingly have their life turned upside down as they find themselves locked in a foreign cell with a one-eyed Vietnamese drug trafficking bunk mate for company. “It couldn’t happen to me” is exposed for the lie it is in this fascinating warning for us all.
