Discussion will feature Frank Holder, Chairman, Latin America Region, FTI Consulting, and author, "Integrity in Business: Developing Ethical Behavior Across Cultures and Jurisdictions", and Diane Francis, Editor-at-Large, The National Post
TORONTO, Feb. 6, 2014 /CNW/ - At a time when the global economy is becoming increasingly regulated and complex, two international thought leaders are converging today in Toronto to discuss the complex nature of integrity and business. Frank Holder, Chairman of the Latin America region for FTI Consulting (NYSE: FCN), and author of Integrity in Business: Developing Ethical Behavior Across Cultures and Jurisdictions, will join Diane Francis, Editor-at-Large at The National Post in a discussion on how companies can navigate this new landscape at The Trump Hotel in Toronto. FTI Consulting, Inc. is the global business advisory firm dedicated to helping organizations protect and enhance their enterprise value.
"Businesses today are operating in an environment that makes adhering to ethical practices more important than ever," said Mr. Holder. "The nature of integrity and business can be frustratingly oxymoronic, leaving companies uncertain as to how to protect their reputations and market value. In examining regulatory changes over the last ten years, I hope to have provided executives and leaders with the opportunity to thoughtfully evaluate the integrity practices at their organizations and take proactive steps to limiting risks and liabilities in this area."
Mr. Holder's book is a salient guide to business integrity when navigating the increasingly regulated and complex global economy. Offering an in-depth analysis of the relationship between growing regulations and monitoring and integrity in business, Mr. Holder takes a comprehensive look at the relationship between business practices and the regulatory environments in developed and developing economies. He answers questions like: what critical issues will developed economies encounter while experiencing regulatory changes? Do developing economies experience issues in adjusting to new global standards and how might these affect the local customs?
Added Nicholas Remillard, President and CEO, International Economic Forum for the Americas: "For the last 20 years, The International Economic Forum of the Americas has promoted the role of the Americas in major decisions and reforms related to the current global economic context. During this time, we have seen firsthand the role that sound ethical practices can play in facilitating international business opportunities, while protecting the reputations and market value of both parties involved. This discussion with Mr. Holder is incredibly timely and we are looking forward to him sharing his insights with Toronto's executive community."
