Conflicts Of Interest in the Digital Age: Planning Ahead To Avoid Reputational Risk

High-profile cases involving conflict of interest have been making headlines in Canada. And while these cases involve different industries and factors, a common theme is that those who were in conflict often reported seeing no problems with their choices until it was too late. This shows one of the most challenging aspects for ethics and compliance professionals: teaching both management and employees how to appropriately respond to conflict of interest situations, but more importantly, how to identify them before they even begin.

Hindsight is 20/20. Coming up with a definition of conflicts of interest is easy. However, as many organizations are finding, operationalization of Conflict of Interest policies and practices is anything but. Most plans still focus on removing the opportunities for competing interests to come into play, but this approach only addresses the ‘low hanging fruit’. The reality is there are myriad connections and interactions between individuals, and unless these risks are taken into consideration, your plan could fail in a very public way.

Join us for this special session which will bring to light the very real issues surrounding Conflicts of Interest, and how your organization can better prepare for potential issues.

Taking Fear out of Risk: The Leader’s Role in Sustainable Risk Management

Every day, in every industry across the country, leaders are forced to make choices. Whether mundane or significant, choices inform corporate decisions, and it is these decisions that accumulate to form and shape an organization’s culture and performance. But we’re all human, and when a person is faced with a choice, fear can inhibit judgment, potentially stifling innovation or masking opportunities in a cloak of risk.

In many respects, managing fear and managing risk are synonymous. The reduction of risk can better position an organization to analyze options and make evidence-based decisions. The goal is to remove the emotional and fear-based aspects of decision-making. Managing risk and removing uncertainty is one of the benefits of an enterprise-wide risk management program.

Over the last 20 years, Enterprise Risk Management has taken on various forms and frameworks. Too often, ERM is initiated with great fanfare, only to eventually drift to the outer orbit of leadership’s strategic priorities. A sustainable ERM program is a key aspect in helping organizations and leaders make decisions based on knowledge and balanced assessments, not based on fear. This webinar will isolate some key drivers of this trend and provide solutions to promote and sustain an ERM program that is valued and embraced by your organization.

Don’t miss this chance to hear distinct strategies for designing and sustaining an effective enterprise risk management program, reflecting observations and experiences from the real world. The presenters, Marc Dominus and Gregg Anderson, will focus on solutions relating to the distinct roles that organizational leaders play in defining and sustaining an ERM program.
