My name is Justin Paperny and I know first-hand what follows when we choose to look the other way. In this course, I reveal the lessons I learned about willful blindness. I once worked in the financial services industry as a stockbroker. When I suspected that one of my clients had been operating a Ponzi scheme, I chose to ignore evidence of a crime. One bad decision after another led to my being complicit in his crime. As a result, I was subjected to a government investigation, then a criminal prosecution. This course reveals the lessons I learned about willful blindness.

This event may be a rebroadcast of a live event and the instructor will be available to answer your questions during the event.
