When reporting on risk to the board, skip the PowerPoint
Corporate Counsel    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Fifty years ago in Washington D.C., Martin Luther King, Jr. departed from his prepared remarks and delivered a speech that left an indelible mark on the American conscience. No PowerPoint. No technology — just imagery and cadence. He watched his audience, not a screen. In an age where so many of us rely on technology and PowerPoint presentations, the most effective communicators understand that to persuasively present ideas, you have to understand your audience and react to signals sent to the presenter in real time. One of the challenges compliance officers will face this year is communication — providing the board of directors with the information they need about the company's compliance program — and they will need to know how to pay attention to people instead of a slide.

New year, old risks: 10 questions every CIO should ask in 2013
The Wall Street Journal    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Once upon a time, information risk management wasn't that difficult. Write up a standard policy, train employees and the rest would take care of itself. But information risk is more complex in 2013. New technologies such as mobile devices, social media and cloud computing magnify the impact and likelihood of risks companies already assess as beyond acceptable (and manageable) levels. More

The 2 faces of US economic prospects
Fleet Owner Magazine    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
An interesting mix of factors at this point in time seems to be generating a "two-faced" outlook, if you will, for the U.S. economy. On the one hand, one collaborative outlook predicts that by the second half of 2013, the country should start to witness decent — if not strong — economic growth. However, on the other, a different survey of 3,200 business leaders from 44 nations indicates that optimism is in retreat — with U.S. business leaders in particular souring on the economic prospects for our nation. So the question before us, then, is which "face" will the U.S. economy eventually display? More

iMediaConnection    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article

It isn't easy to do. More

Are today's business leaders too afraid of risk?
TIME    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
During this year's TIME Davos panel "Leading through Adversity," TIME International editor Jim Frederick asked some of the world's biggest players in the global economy a simple question: Are leaders too risk-averse in their efforts to bring the economy back on track? Indeed, political gridlock has been gripping economies from the U.S. to Germany to China, making uncertainty a defining theme of this year's Davos chatter. Aside from political risks abroad, corporate executives have taken a lot of heat for using uncertainty about taxes and regulation back home as an excuse to put off investing in jobs and growth. More
