Companies often ask me to record video for internal training. They want real-world stories of corruption and commerce which they can embed into an existing on-line anti-bribery compliance training.
Mastercard took that to a new level when they engaged a production company to depict chapters of my own FCPA violations, eventual guilty plea, and my sentencing to fourteen and a half months in prison.
An anti-bribery training film based on that Mastercard production is now available for short and long term licensing from Front-Line Anti-Bribery LLC in association with Mastercard.
It’s designed for use by any company in any industry, and in any location.
The 11-minute video is narrated by Keith Slotter, former chief of the FBI’s Global Financial Crimes Program.
This isn’t “what if” training but “what happens” training.
Karen Griffin, executive vice president and chief compliance officer at Mastercard, said: “We recognized the need to move beyond the traditional classroom exercise to help our teams understand the potential impact of bribery and compliance events.”
“Richard’s story delivered just that and we’re looking at ways to continue to build on this film to continue to reinforce other learning moments,” Griffin said.
It was an honor to work with Mastercard on this production. And it’s an honor to bring the video to the wider compliance community.
Here’s the one minute trailer:
