Episode 5: Jim’s Advice for Those Starting Out
By Ronald J. Coleman
Our fifth episode, “Anti-Corruption Compliance: Bribery & FCPA”, features guest speakers Jim McCurry, Jon Kolodner, and Lisa Vicens. I asked our guests if “a student or someone more junior would like to do what you do or get into your area, what advice would you give them?” Jim said:
“I’m going to steal part of Lisa’s point there and latch on to the international element of it, because I think the way companies operate, the way the regulators are looking, this is a very global issue. And it is nuanced, it’s challenging, but unless you have a global perspective on how to address it or understand what the challenges are to address it from a global perspective, it’s going to be difficult to get into the space. I think that would be my word of encouragement. Think about this as a very holistic global issue and something that literally the world is trying to confront on a day by day basis.”
