Laszlo Bock (Exclusively WSB)

Some people work to make a buck. Some people work to climb the ladder. And some people work because they know deep in their souls that their work *matters*. That they are building something greater than themselves. Something that has an impact way beyond the day-to-day. And that makes them happier, more committed, and even more productive. The amazing thing is that people who find meaning in their work exist in every profession, from doctors and executives to cleaning staff and deli workers. Laszlo Bock explains how to find the deeper meaning in your own organization's work and how to cultivate that connection in your people. If you want to be surrounded by passionate, motivated, high performing people, you need to connect them to a mission that matters.

Corruption is one of the most pervasive and pernicious risks facing corporations, banks, private equity funds and other investors in the international marketplace. Not only can corruption add sizeable costs to the bottom line and damage reputations and brand images for many years, it can also result in very serious criminal penalties, including imprisonment and very large fines. Despite the fact that an increasing number of governments have been either strengthening existing sanctions against corruption or establishing wholly new anti-corruption regimes, rarely, it seems, does a month go by without the appearance of a news headline about a firm being charged with involvement in corrupt activities. At the same time, businesses often complain about the fact that because their rivals are not being held to the same corruption standards, unfair competitive advantages are being created, or that anti-corruption authorities don’t understand that for some cultures, certain business practices are not deemed as corruption but as traditional ways to carry out commerce. Drawing on his considerable experience counseling businesses on structuring corruption de-risking strategies as well as advising governments on the design and execution of anti-corruption reform programs, Harry Broadman shares his insights on the “dos and don’ts” and best practice approaches to mitigating the risk of corruption in foreign markets. What are the various laws, regulations and enforcement institutions both at home and in key markets abroad most pertinent to corruption issues? What are the most effective strategies for combatting incipient corruption?  What options are available to deal with competitors who are seemingly immune to corruption sanctions? How should a business’s compliance practices be designed and implemented? How can individuals or entities who are likely to present corruption vulnerabilities be systematically identified through due diligence at the very outset? What are the most effective responses to the discovery of corrupt activities? Which remedial steps are likely to have the largest payoffs? Broadman offers a window on the trends in the incidence of and responses to corruption in key foreign markets, e.g., China and Russia, and giving audiences the means to operate safely and successfully in the international arena.

We constantly hear about the “pipeline problem” of women in the technology industry. Companies want to hire more women and drive more diversity, but they say they struggle in finding qualified candidates. Is the pipeline problem real and how can we better prepare our girls and young women for careers in the technology industry? Busque will share her experiences from how her eight year old self learned about what a CEO does, to having strong female mentors and role models throughout pivotal educational years, to quitting her job at IBM to found TaskRabbit – a pioneer of the sharing economy movement. Her experiences as a speaker for Girls Who Code, mentor for Girls in Tech, and board Trustee for Sweet Briar College have shaped her perspective on bridging the gap for women in technology. As we strive to increase diversity in the pipeline, Busque will also share how companies can start finding qualified diverse candidates today, by increasing their focus on culture building, investing in diversity and inclusion programs, and working with untraditional recruiting resources to fill the gap immediately. The audience will be left motivated, inspired, and with new tools at the ready to drive diversity for their organization.

Liz Claman has worked tireless to raise money for Building Homes for Heroes.org.

Charity: water believes in inspiring generosity. They focus on the positive, tell stories about opportunity and always emphasize the hope more than the need. They work with incredible local partners around the globe to implement the water projects they fund, and their Water Programs team spends about 30% of their time in the field managing projects, building relationships with local teams and reporting back results to donors.

Through the use of innovative technology, charity: water has also developed remote sensors to monitor the functionality of their water projects. With the help of local leaders and trained mechanics, charity: water is not only working to bring clean water to communities in need, but is making sure it keeps flowing at projects around the world for years to come. This is all made possible by a small group of private donors who pay charity: water’s operating costs, allowing 100% of donations made to clean water to fund water projects for people in need.
