Code of Conduct

"Remember upon the conduct of each depends the fate of all" - Alexander the Great

Code of Conduct at Events

Global Growth Business assumes that most people have good intentions, are intelligent, and are looking to be part of a great event. We’re not going to tell you what to do, however, we want all our events to be safe and productive environments for all participants.

We support a positive and all-inclusive environment. We do not condone any form of harassment or offensive behavior, be it at our event or anywhere else.

We invite and encourage everyone to make every event a welcoming place, and to be respectful of all participants regardless of race, gender, identity, expression, age, sexual orientation, (dis)ability, appearance, nationality, ethnicity, political affiliation, or religion.

Examples of harassment include verbal threats or demands, sexualized images in public spaces, intimidation, stalking, harassing photography or videography, sustained disruption of sessions and unwelcome physical contact or sexual attention.

Participants asked to stop any such behavior are expected to comply immediately. Participants not complying to this Code of Conduct may be evicted from the event without refund and refused entry to all future Global Growth Business events including partner events.

Please bring any concerns to our immediate attention; our onsite conference staff are on-hand to assist. You can also call +1.415.237.0076 to report anything.

We thank our participants for helping to keep our events safe, welcoming & respectful to all.

Great leaders of organizations run after problems, make their footprint bigger than their foot, and always strive to find the truth — because you have to get to the truth to be excellent.

CFO, Twitter

The primary mandate of the CFO is to be the guardian of shareholder value for the company. Traditionally, this was about managing risk, but today CFOs are expected to balance risk and opportunity. It's become quite a quite multi-dimensional role.


Operating a global business in a fast-changing world, you have to be grounded real-time in the external environment, have complete transparency, be fact-based and working with a great, collaborative team.

CFO, Ford

With an increasingly integrated world economy, be prepared to respond to higher levels of both risk and opportunity. A strong balance sheet is a tremendous asset when managing though periods of volatility.

CFO, Chevron

From an M&A standpoint, the returns on a spreadsheet are interesting, but it is far more important to be comfortable with the people running the business.

CFO, Krogers

Look at what your organization needs and don't be afraid to take chances, but balance risk with success, only increasing the former when the latter goals are being met.
