Tom Fox: Doing Compliance Master Training In New York City, November 28 and 29

I am pleased to announce my partnering with Marcum LLP to put on a two-day Doing Compliance Master Class, which will be unlike any other class currently being offered. It will be held in New York City on November 28 and 29, 2017.

This Doing Compliance Master Class is not theory or analytical underpinnings of the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA) but focuses on operationalizing of compliance. For it is only in the doing of compliance that companies have a real chance of avoiding FCPA liability.

The Doing Compliance Master Class will move from the theory of the FCPA into the doing of compliance and how you must document this work to create a best practices compliance program. Building from the Ten Hallmarks of an Effective Compliance, using the concepts from the Justice Department’s FCPA Pilot Program and the questions posed from the Evaluation of Corporate Compliance Programs as a guide, you will learn the intricacies of risk assessments; what should be included in your policies and procedures; the five-step life cycle of third party risk evaluation and management; tone throughout your organization; training and using other corporate functions to facilitate cost-effective compliance programs.

The Doing Compliance Master Class will be based around my book, Doing Compliance: Design, Create, and Implement an Effective Anti-Corruption Compliance Program, which focuses on the creation, implementation and enhancement of a best practices compliance program. I will also use the text of my upcoming book The Complete Compliance Handbook which will published in early 2018.

The FCPA Master Class will be held on November 28 and 29, 2017 at the offices of Marcum LLC, 750 3rd Avenue, 11th Floor, New York, NY 10017. A Certificate of Completion will be provided to all who attend in addition to the continuing education credits that each state approves. The cost to attend is $1,495 per person. Breakfast, lunch and refreshments will be provided both days.
