3:45 PM - 5:30 PM | The Notion of Vision and Purpose: Embracing an Empathetic Leadership Style

Join this insightful and interactive masterclass that deep dives into the wellness agenda for yourself and your team. Regardless of seniority, we as human beings have to deal with pressure, stress and disparate goals, all of which are amplified within the legal profession. The general counsel, on top of that, is fundamentally a leader of people. They have the responsibility to take measures and implement change that will ensure the wellness of their team - in a way that is very much linked to the strategy of the business as it's closely linked to their motivation, creativity and resilience in a work arena. Our speakers will discuss the best ways to build an empathetic workforce, through actionable steps that will ensure that the team can embrace the idea of bringing their whole selves to work in a culture that is increasingly verbal in mental health and wellbeing.

“The
Infiltrator” – Why nearly $2 Trillion is Laundered Every Year
Robert Mazur reveals why 98% of the nearly $2 trillion in illicit funds laundered each year moves undetected into the world economy. He shares insights from a platform built on his New York Times bestselling book, The Infiltrator, which is the basis for the internationally released film of the same name, starring Bryan Cranston. With a combination of insight gained from years of operating undercover as a sophisticated money launderer and endless time spent studying the most significant current cases, Mazur arms his audiences with critical knowledge. He exposes detailed schemes currently used by corrupt professionals, institutions and businesses. He also identifies the geographic areas, types of transaction patterns, types of businesses, and types of products that are most often linked to illicit funds. Among many other issues, he sheds light on the latest aspects of terrorist financing, the massive influx of illicit funds into China, the real place that cryptocurrency has in the legal and illegal markets, how black money markets operate around the globe, and much more.
