Every year, Compliance Week hosts a number of intimate "off-the-record" Editorial Roundtables.
These unique invitation-only events are designed to foster the sharing of ideas with a small group of compliance and risk leaders in a forum that is relaxed and informal.
Hosted by Compliance Week editor-in-chief Matt Kelly and attended by a Compliance Week reporter and photographer, the Roundtables are covered in a subsequent edition of Compliance Week. This ensures that all Compliance Week readers can benefit from the "thought leadership" generated at the event.
Typically, the Roundtables include eight to 12 corporate financial or legal officers from public companies, depending on the topic. The event is designed so the attendees can compare and contrast their efforts, and contribute recommendations and insights based on their experiences.
The Roundtables are capped off with a cocktail reception that includes a larger group of Compliance Week subscribers.
