a convercent® event

Thank you for an amazing event!

CONVERGE18 was truly an ethics and compliance event to remember. We talked about organizational justice with Chuck D, CEO activism with a group of CEOs and board members, effective compliance with Hui Chen, and we rocked out with School of Rock.

CONVERGE18 is now over, but you can continue the conversation in our Converge LinkedIn group or watch some highlights from this year’s conference.

happens here.







Last year we introduced our vision of driving ethics to the center of business for a better world. This year we put ethics into action with a focus on connecting ethics and compliance to business performance through process augmentation and data visualization.

Past Attendees

Amazing job! They packed awesome content into two days — I feel as if I had more takeaways from Converge than I did at a 5-day long E&C conference I recently attended.

CONVERGE17 Attendee

The best thing about the conference was the approach to culture and driving the needle in a more integrated way. It was valuable to connect with other companies also on the same path.

CONVERGE17 Attendee

The sessions were very focused and interesting. The speakers were just perfect. And, most of all, the people of Convercent were extremely nice. You could just feel that they love what they do and the company they work for.
