An Unusual Journey to Compliance: Would I Do it Again?

04/21/2021 @ 14:00 - 15:00 EDT

About the Session:

The pandemic has shown the good for some people, the bad and the ugly for others compelling many to always assess and adapt. What “good” can come out of such a situation? Beyond the challenging consequences we all have faced, the time spent in lockdown has created an atmosphere of self-examination both on personal and professional levels, with astonishing discoveries.

Some benefits from attending the session:

  • How I discovered why I am passionate about compliance and ethics.
  • The power of the dynamic“background-interests-career”.
  • Key professional lessons learned from going through the pandemic.
