IMPACT 2019

The Ultimate Ethics & Compliance Benchmarking Event

Dallas, TX | April 30 to May 2, 2019

DAY PASSES ARE NOW AVAILABLE

It’s not just a conference.  It’s a program evaluation.

When was the last time that you attended an event and came back with:

  • Actual measures of the maturity of your E&C program?
  • Reliable benchmarks of the progress of your organization, compared to industry peers?
  • Ideas from best practice, specifically related to the areas where you are hoping to improve?

ECI’s IMPACT event will allow you to do all that, and more!  Every organization in attendance will receive access to ECI’s revolutionary High Quality Program (HQP) Assessment tool Take the assessment before you attend, or complete it on-site.  Your results will give you never-before-seen insights in to the way your E&C program functions.

Then, through a series of keynotes and small-group benchmarking sessions, we will provide industry comparisons, contextualize the benchmarks, define what they mean for your program and organization, and discuss practical strategies for improvement.

This is just the start!  This annual event is destined to be the “must attend” event to measure the growth of your program year-over-year.

How do you measure HQP?

HQP is measured through a comprehensive self-examination.  The assessment is survey-based and can be taken collaboratively, or as a team or department to better gauge how well your program is communicated and functioning across the enterprise.

Our research team has spent years working to develop an assessment tool that can be utilized to create a baseline, foster discussion, and be benchmarked against peer organizational data.

How does it work?

  • Take the online HQP Assessment before coming to the event, or come a little early and take the Assessment when you arrive at one of our Assessment stations.
  • With your assessment in hand, attend keynote talks and small-group breakout sessions where you can discuss and compare your results the latest benchmarks, statistics and with your peers.

This program is so jam-packed you will want to send more than one person to get the full benefit of what IMPACT 2019 has to offer.

This ethics & compliance industry event is THE event to attend if you are looking to keep up with the latest industry trends and uncover new ideas and practices that you can use to advance your organization and your career.

Learn from renowned keynote speakers, and leverage the experiences of your peers in breakout sessions & hands-on workshops.  Return to your organization with a toolkit filled with resources that you can use to lead initiatives that will improve the quality of your E&C program.
