Practical view at the regulations and rules in the fastest changing science industry from the point of view of the owner of a small IT company, which thanks to the original attitude to the rules compliance achieved such a worldwide success that its way of project management and its own unique technology has been bought by an American software giant Bentley Systems.

Three effective and low-cost ways to radically improve compliance

15.40 – 16.00

Daniel Marek (Systemios)
Every company is a living organism in which management and employee actions and inactions are deeply interconnected. Employees and their behaviours reflect how the company has been designed and managed to date, both consciously and unconsciously. Non-compliance is just a symptom – its causes are almost always in other parts of the company, usually at the top. Addressing the causes is a very effective and, in most companies, a low cost way of increasing the compliance and improving business results. I will describe three real-life, practical strategies everyone can implement immediately.

Workshop: The profile of business confidence and its impact on efficient compliance

16.00 – 16.30

Ing. Dagmar Kéryová CPCC, PCC. (Mysliteľňa), Ing. Jana Bernaťáková (Mysliteľňa) 
A truly efficient compliance system requires more than just establishing the roles and responsibilities and setting the processes. This is the “technical” part of building the system. To be truly functional, a system requires the human part, otherwise any newly created system becomes an isolated world contributing zero to the firm’s success. In the course of this 30 minutes workshop, we will be dealing with tools needed for a targeted creation of a confidence level required in order to establish functional alliances and relationships conducive to cooperation.

JUDr. Jaroslav Spišiak (Slovnaft)

Position of a compliance officer

17.10 – 17.30

Juraj Szabó (Compliance Expert)
Is the compliance position truly so meaningless as many perceive it? How to get as much from this position for the company, and is this even possible? And what happens if, due to a police raid, there will be noone else left but you to run the company? Can something like this happen at all?
