INCEPTION: Insights Inspire Inspection and Attention

 A brief note to remind readers that the early bird registration deadline for Inception 2017 (May 15-18) expires this Friday. With great turnout (and great feedback) from risk-focused attendees last year, it was inevitable that we’d increase our risk investment in 2017.

Indeed, we’re planning informative, instructive and inspiring sessions. These include a special Risk Roundtable track. (And a GC breakfast event, which I heard loudly and clearly that many non-partner, risk professionals wanted in on last year. Message received, see below.)

Some key sessions, panels and topics which should incite interest:
  • Panel summary and discussion of key takeaways from the morning GC breakfast
  • Risk staffing approaches for conflicts management
  • Enhancing the business impact of risk management
  • Making the case for investing in risk
  • Expanding client evaluation (beyond conflicts, how to address client health, strategic alignment and other factors)
  • Enhancing intake through better client requirements and terms of business management
  • Integrating third party data into business acceptance
  • Case studies about migrating from legacy conflicts applications
  • Advanced topics and scenarios in new business intake
  • Advanced topics in conflicts management and compliance (AML, KYC, etc)
  • Addressing business intake/conflicts management as part of general Practice Management System (PMS) migrations and upgrades
  • Information security trends and drivers
  • Why Walls, information barriers and screens now matter more than ever
While (full disclosure) some of these sessions have an Intapp focus (it’s the “in” thing these days, after all), many are broadly focused on approach and strategy, applicable to any risk professional.)

The latest agenda, event overview and a new “Dear Manager” letter template (for those who might need some assistance making the case for investment to their supervisors) are all online at:

Dan... Discounts?
I previously offered qualified and enterprising blog readers a path to an additional discount. And in the spirit of inclusion (today is a big post for “in” words), I’m extending the same offer this week, with a limited supply on hand.

If you’re interested... email: Tammy (and tell her that I sent you). (And watch for future updates on Inception 2017.)

And, for a bit more flavor on the event, see this 90 second recap video highlighting the 2016 experience:
