Please join us for a roundtable on Lego’s Strategy for Ethics, Risk and Sustainability  featuring Rico Ferrarese, senior strategic risk manager of the LEGO Group (Denmark).
Just as “The Lego Movie” hits theaters, we have an opportunity to learn from Lego’s business experience and growing expertise in risk management. Ferrarese will focus on the intersection – and overlap – among ethics and compliance, sustainability, risk and business strategy in a hyper-competitive global economy.

Founded in 1932, based in the small town of Billund, Denmark, Lego patented its famous building block in 1958, experienced rapid growth, nearly went bankrupt in 2003-2004, yet stormed back to be the world’s second largest, but most profitable toy maker. It continues to confront the challenging and rapid globalization of the business environment.

Due to the generous support of the University of St. Thomas Blanch Risk Leadership Initiative, there is no registration fee for this event. However, advanced registration is required. A light continental breakfast will be served.

Additional details are available for this event.
