Everyday Ethics for the Meetings Professional

Now more than ever, meetings professionals and hospitality partners are facing ethical challenges in every aspect of their jobs – right and wrong is not always black and white. This session will provide relevant information that will aid them in making professional choices and understanding the impact of their choices. Walk through ethical dilemma examples and personal reactions to situations that have happened to your fellow meeting professionals and prepare yourself for future ethical conflicts that may arise.

Learning Outcomes:
• SOX and its impact
• Recognizing real choices we face as planners and suppliers
• Industry Standards of Excellence
• "Red Flags"
• Implementing a policy
