The First Ethos Charity Symposium

Ethics, compliance, corporate culture
and the avoidance of cockup

Looking beyond processes and training to minimise the risk of major
ethical and compliance errors

3

 

Join us for our first charity symposium which will consider the role of corporate culture in serious compliance failures

Join us as we delve into ethics, compliance, corporate culture, and serious mistakes. We will consider how serious ethical and compliance issues arise and the role of organisational culture within that.

Organisational culture can seem a fuzzy thing when compared to the written SOPs, policies, processes and training we have in place to ensure compliance. Nevertheless a ‘poor culture’ undoubtedly contributes significantly to serious compliance risk. What is it though? How do we know if business culture is broken and how do we fix it?

This event offers a unique opportunity to network with like-minded individuals, exchange ideas, and gain valuable knowledge in an informal atmosphere.

We have limited spaces at this event to 50, within a small auditorium, in order to ensure full audience participation in discussions with the expert faculty.

Don’t miss out on what we expect to be a thought-provoking event. Mark your calendars for December 6, 2023, follow the link to book your spot and join us at The Royal Society of Medicine, London.

We look forward to seeing you there!

Your speakers for the day and a bit about what they’ll be discussing

Dr Nick Broughton

Founding Partner, Ethos Ethics and Compliance

Will consider organisational culture, what it is and the evidence it contributes to major ethical failure and compliance risk.

Professor Raanan Gillon

Emeritus Professor of Medical Ethics, Imperial College London

What happens when personal ethical perspective conflicts with the direction an organisation is taking? Professor Gillon doesn’t provide a set of answers but he does offer a shareable way of coming to such answer.

Mr Alex Fell

Director of the PMCPA

Will reflect on major compliance errors in the past and their root causes. Looking beyond written process and training, what indicators are there that a company is at risk of major compliance failings and what practically can be done about it?

Ms Jill Pearcy

Director of Reputation, ABPI

Will look at the culture of the industry as a whole and consider what the current perception of it is. Is it worth trying to change that and if so how?

Ms Trishna Bharadia

Patient engagement expert, health advocate and speaker

Will propose that the patient must be central to corporate culture in pharma, and reflect on the evidence that the industry is currently failing in that regard. Which companies are getting it right and what are they doing?

Dr Henrietta Hughes

Patient Safety Commissioner for England

Will reflect on her experience amplifying the voice of patients and promoting patient safety. What systemic challenges to ethical behaviour are there in
large organisations and how can change be achieved?

Dr David Gillen

Chief Medical Officer, Norgine

Will chair a debate to consider what is a strong ethical culture and how can it be achieved in a business environment. Is an ethical and compliant culture necessarily a less profitable one?

Dr Vinay Patroe

Former Medical Director, Janssen UK

Will join the debate and provide a short personal reflection on what is important in an ethical culture and the practical mechanisms for delivering this.

Dr Simon Newton

General Manager, UK and Ireland, Jazz Pharma

Will join the debate and provide a short personal reflection on what is important in an ethical culture and the practical mechanisms for delivering this.

Dr Samin Saeed

Chief Medical Officer, PharmaReview Ltd

Will join the debate and provide a short personal reflection on what is important in an ethical culture and the practical mechanisms for delivering this.

Dr Philip Hammond

Retired doctor, broadcaster, journalist and comedian

Will round off the event with a broad perspective on the subject of organisational cockup, its root causes and how to lessen the risk of it, drawing on his experience inside and outside of healthcare and his knowledge of pharma.
