This past Tuesday I was honored to present the closing keynote at the 2016 Society of Corporate Compliance and Ethics conference in Chicago. My topics was How to Be a Wildly Effective Compliance Officer, and it was a truly exciting to present before an audience of 1700 of my marvellous compliance peers.
I was deeply touched by the audience's social media response to the presentation, with Ben DiPietro, Risk and Compliance Editor at the Wall Street Journal tweeting, "The one and only @KristyGrantHart was dynamic today giving the keynote at #SCCEcei" and, "You crushed it up there! A great and inspiring positive message about compliance to people who needed it!." Thought-leader Tom Fox adding, "If you aren't psyched about compliance after that, you won't be!"
Thank you to everyone who had me sign their special edition book provided by Convercent, and even bigger thank you to those who brought your own book from home! The conference was a huge success, and I was so lucky to be a part of it.
