Event Description:

Join CCI - Corporate Communication International and the Robert Zicklin Center for Corporate Integrity as we welcome Jonathan Spector, President and Chief Executive Officer of The Conference Board, Inc., to Baruch College.

open to the public

Whether the discussion occurs during the 24-hour media cycle or at the water cooler, the current business scandal is the news of the day. Trust in corporate America, and in particular the financial sector, is in dire need of repair. Profit margins may be improving, but financial institutions' images and reputations are badly bruised with each new revelation. US investors have lost confidence in the financial markets to operate on a level playing field.

Leading the effort to rebuild trust, The Conference Board recently took action to suspend its embargo agreement with news outlets. It will no longer provide market moving economic data to them in advance, over concerns of information leaks that may give certain traders an unfair advantage over the rest of the market.

Spector will explain the rationale behind The Conference Board's decision. He will also outline concrete steps that companies and the organizations that represent them must take to restore trust in business and move the economy forward.

About the Speaker

The Conference Board convenes thousands of executives annually in council, conference, and meeting programs, and publishes the Consumer Confidence Index , The Conference Board Leading Economic Index (LEI) for 11 countries and regions around the world, and other reports on economic trends and best management practices.
