GRC Breakthrough Bootcamp – Los Angeles, CA – October 2018
October 8 @ 8:00 am - October 10 @ 5:00 pm PDT
If you are like others I have talked to you’ve probably found integrating governance, risk management, and compliance (GRC) is like herding cats … way more challenging than articles and webinars make it out to be.
I know. I’ve been there too.
There are simple steps you can take to get past all the noise and confusion … that doesn’t require a significant financial investment to get started. You can literally bust through the barriers holding you back from where you want to be.
IT WORKS!!! I have done it and have helped people just like you become Rock Stars.
If you want to work smarter, YOU CAN!
To help you avoid many of the same mistakes I made, I put together this 3-day training workshop. Mistakes that unfortunately organizations are still making every day.
WHAT YOU’LL GET OUT OF THIS BOOTCAMP
- Get past the noise and confusion
- Work smarter, not harder
- Avoid the common mistakes
- Break down silos
- Create real business value
- Increased job satisfaction
The Choice is Yours
|If you keep doing what you’re doing …||If you come to this bootcamp…|
|Nobody listens to you||Your ideas heard and understood|
|No department cooperation||Engagement across the organization|
|Work harder||Work smarter|
|Viewed as an annoying cost center||Viewed as a Rock Star adding value|
It’s time to break on through to the other side.
How do you get the cooperation and collaboration of others in your organization for your governance, risk management and compliance (GRC) efforts? How do you get them to listen to you and work with you? How do you break down silos in your organization that are a duplication of efforts? How do you position governance, risk management, and compliance as a value creator instead of a cost center? This GRC training bootcamp shows you how to do just that.
If you are trying to integrate governance, risk management, and compliance (GRC) functions in your organization you may be experiencing some of the same common challenges most organizations experience.
- Lack of champions,
- Lack of resources,
- Inability to secure department cooperation, and
- Lack of a strategy for implementation
Are you frustrated or challenged, to get buy in from management or gain champions in other parts of your organization? Do you feel like it’s challenging to accomplish your job because of:
- Not sure exactly where to start,
- Nobody is listening to you,
- You can’t get a seat at the table,
- More and more being added to your plate,
- Asked to do more with less,
- Constantly putting out fires, and reacting to the latest risk or compliance requirement,
- Little or no cooperation from other groups in your organization,
- A lack of resources to get the job done.
If you are being asked to do more, with less, and feel as if you are making only minimal progress, even though you are working more than ever, I have some very good news.
There are some simple ways to change your language, change your thinking, and change your approach that will help you work through those challenges. A way to create a language, framework and process to knock down those silos. A way for you to be seen as someone who adds value instead of a cost center.
Imagine what you could accomplish without those challenges.
If you are ready to develop a more strategic, proactive approach, join Jason Mefford for this upcoming deep dive training session where you will learn a language, framework and process for removing the barriers to integration in your organization.

OCEG GRC Capability Model
Principled Performance® is the reliable achievement of objectives while addressing uncertainty and acting with integrity. It is the reason organizations integrate their governance, management and assurance of performance, risk and compliance. The “why” behind GRC.
You will learn how to integrate using the OCEG GRC Capability Model (www.oceg.org). It will provide you with a process and language to discuss GRC concepts at your organization, and gain buy-in from management, and develop champions in other parts of your organization.
Whether you are just starting, or are a veteran and want to improve your GRC program, this training was developed for you. Jason Mefford was a principal author of the OCEG GRC Capability Model and can explain the theory, but also the practical application for your organization.
OCEG is the organization that invented the concept of integrated GRC, and Mefford Associates is an approved OCEG training partner.

In addition to being such an enjoyable and great experience itself, the training provided me with a variety of new tools and ideas how to manage and promote GRC and ethics in our organization.
