Consero Announces 2014 General Counsel Forum to be Held in Phoenix, Ariz.

BETHESDA, Md- (May 22, 2014) – Consero Group, an international leader in creating high-level, invitation-only events for senior executives, today announced the 2014 General Counsel Forum to be held June 8-10 at the Arizona Biltmore in Phoenix, Ariz.

“Often serving as a trusted advisor to the CEO, Board and others, today’s General Counsel is at the forefront of the business, influencing the corporate agenda and identifying new opportunities in ways uncharacteristic of GCs of the past,” said Paul Mandell, Founder & CEO of Consero. “Through our focus on high-level content and the unique opportunity to network within an exclusive community of executive peers, Consero’s General Counsel Forum provides executives with best practices and new strategies to create added value for the company.”

“The General Counsel Forum will examine the crossroads of innovation and the law,” said Jessica Druckman, Founder & SVP of Program Development at Consero. “We will discuss which technology changes will be the most transformative in their impact on the practice of law over the next five years, and how to foster a culture of creativity and innovation within the legal department.”

Additional topics will include:

  • Breaking Bad: Weaving a culture of compliance and ethics into corporate fabric, including promoting a company-wide culture of compliance that includes a high level of individual employee awareness and accountability.
  • From the Shop Floor to the C-Suite: Forging strategic partnerships across the business, including ensuring the legal team is viewed as more of a strategic partner to the business, and what to do when it is time to tell the CEO “no.”
  • Reacting and Responding to a Shifting Landscape of Enterprise Risk: Responding to “bet the company” threats, and best practices for dealing with senior management on more delicate legal issues.
