During this session hear from Suzanne Reifman, Assistant General Counsel & Director at General Dynamics Corporation as she shares recommendations and lessons learned from her recent journey revamping key aspects of General Dynamic’s corporate compliance training program as well as her past experiences working with other companies as in-house and outside counsel. Discussing General Dynamic’s shift from pre-COVID, in person trainings to remote, targeted “meeting style” sessions that include both plenary and workshop meetings, Suzanne will discuss how the GD team went about crafting and staffing the new sessions, mapping the training budget, incentivizing attendance and synthesizing feedback in a way that is beneficial for both the organization and the trainee.
