PRINCETON, NJ, September 17, 2010 – Oliver Quinn, Esq., Principal and Senior Counselor of Taft Communications, the leading communications firm, will speak at the Understanding Ethics on a New Financial Services Frontier conference on Wednesday, September 22 in Washington, D.C. The conference is co-hosted by the Association of American Retired People (AARP) and the Insurance Marketplace Standards Association (IMSA).
The conference will focus on how companies can maintain ethical practices in the wake of the economic crisis, what companies are doing to establish an ethical culture, and the importance of addressing reputational risk.
As a principal in Taft’s Corporate and Public Affairs Group, Oliver Quinn handles all matters relating to business ethics, corporate compliance and conflict resolution. Mr. Quinn will share his expertise and tips during a presentation focused on the business impact of ethics and compliance programs in today’s business environment.
