Bringing Ethics to a Personal Level

“Kevin Foster’s presentation on Business Ethics and Compliance is the most original and effective I have seen my career as a general counsel, chief of corporate compliance, and global law firm partner. Kevin succinctly captures how and why business executives fall into ethical traps. Understanding such traps is essential to avoiding serious ethical and legal issues, and Kevin’s presentation should be part of every ethics/compliance program.”     Charles R. Morgan CEO, The Morgan Group

“If you’re talking about ethics, you’re bringing ethics to your business. Kevin is the expert you want to talk to. He brings the inspiration, the experience, of being involved in an ethical situation.”     Rich Hart, WealthWave and Evalucore Institute

“I just saw Kevin Foster speaking this morning; he was tremendous. Kevin’s message resonated with the audience; everyone took a message away from the talk that they can use and incorporate into their lives to make them better individuals, and ensure that they don’t get on that slippery slope of ethics violations.”     Jeff Sheehan, IBM Futurist and Top Social Media Influencer

Ethics is a Complex Problem with Life Changing Implications

Individuals tend to ignore what they do not understand or subjects which are overwhelming; ethics is no exception.  Business ethics is a complicated issue, really an enigma.  Ignoring ethical problems can have devastating consequences personally, professionally, financially and many times criminal. However, most criminal prosecutions do not come from violations of little-known laws and regulations but are the result of slips that start small and are preventable by adhering to ethical principles.

It is Kevin’s calling as a keynote speaker and consultant to help others recognize unethical behavior and circumstances that can lead to dangerous choices which can save organizations from the costly and embarrassing situation. His compelling message brings ethics to a personal level. Kevin has developed practical E.T.H.I.C.S. tools that can help all levels of the organization adhere to ethical principles and limit their legal liability. As a natural storyteller, he uses his emotional story of spending 37 months in the federal prison system, including 28 days in solitary confinement, and how he got to there to exemplify how not using E.T.H.I.C.S. tools can have life-altering and many times criminal results.
