Where does creativity fit into compliance? In more places than you think. Problem-solving, accountability, communication, and connection – they all take creativity. Join Tom Fox and Ronnie Feldman on Creativity and Compliance, part of the Compliance Podcast Network. In this show, we’ll be exploring how creativity affects the world of compliance – the ways we use it, and the surprising impacts it can have on the work we do every day. From ethics to leadership, problem-solving to training – creativity permeates what we do as compliance professionals.  In this podcast we have a special quest, Angelique Lee-Rowley, CCO of GW Pharmaceuticals who visits with on the use some of the creative programming the company have rolled out this past year.

    • I’m not a fan of scare tactics.
  • How has the company utilized the programming thus far?

    • E-Learning
    • Paired with other training
