What does 23 years in the compliance and ethics industry teach you? In The Accidental Compliance Professional: Lessons Learned from 23 Years in the Industry, author Roy J. Snell tells his personal and compliance war stories, and how they can help any compliance professional succeed. In an entertaining yet practical way, you’ll learn about:

  • How the Health Care Compliance Association and the Society of Corporate Compliance and Ethics formed
  • The emotional intelligence and interpersonal skills needed to succeed

  • Many more lessons that you can use in your career!

To learn more about this book, Roy and his editor Karen Latchana Kenney discuss how the book was developed and written. It started out, they explained, with the idea of giving some history of compliance but quickly evolved into a vehicle to tell stories and share what Roy had learned along the way.
