Looking for a Business Ethics Speaker Who Understands Today’s Ethical Challenges?

I understand the challenge of finding just the right speaker to talk about ethics for your event. In my prior roles as a certified public accountant with KPMG Peat Marwick and as a commercial real estate broker with Marcus & Millichap, I was given all sorts of training in industry-specific ethics.

However, that training was hardly applicable when I became the vice-president of finance for a real estate development company that became mired in complex allegations of bank fraud.  In hindsight, my personal involvement could have been avoided if I saw the right warning signs and truly understood the risk of doing nothing.

Hardly a day goes by without some new allegations of bad behavior (or worse) by companies and/or their officers.  Even the allegation, much less the truth, of unethical or criminal behavior may result in millions of dollars in legal fees, loss public confidence in the business and, potentially, criminal liability.  Certain industries are under great pressure to mitigate their exposure by providing ethics training to its employees.

I realize that the success of an event discussing business ethics comes down to the quality of the speaker and their connection with the audience. If the speaker can engage the audience, maintain the audience’s attention in an entertaining way and provide valuable lessons, the audience will take away extraordinary insights that can be drawn on in the future. If the speaker didn’t, well …  a not-so-great event.

I speak for corporations, associations and nonprofits that are looking to provide ethics awareness and training to its employees and members.  My ethics presentation can be tailored to the client’s needs in either a keynote address or workshop.

My hope is that this page will make it easy for you to get the information you need to make the best decision possible.
