Clinical Innovations’ Ken Reali to Deliver Keynote at APEC forum
Medical device leader will discuss ‘tone at the top’ before large, international audience
SALT LAKE CITY--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Ken Reali, president and CEO of Clinical Innovations, will share his vision for ethical business conduct as a keynote speaker at the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) forum on Tuesday, September 10, in Santiago, Chile.
Reali, who is also board chairman of the Advanced Medical Technology Association (AdvaMed) Ethics & Health Care Compliance Committee, will discuss how ethics impact return on investment and what “tone at the top” means for small and medium enterprises in 21st century healthcare systems. His address will come during the second day of APEC’s Business Ethics for Small- and Medium-Sized Enterprises (SMEs) Forum, an annual gathering of public, private and civic enterprise organizations from across the globe.
The APEC Business Ethics for SMEs Forum is expected to draw more than 200 international organizations, including 15 AdvaMed member companies. The forum is focused on how government strategies and private enterprise can advance business ethics across the Asia-Pacific region.
“Leading with integrity isn’t just the right thing to do – it drives results and return on investment,” Reali said. “As we navigate increasingly complex global challenges, how we serve patients, how our principles guide us and how we deliver value are inherently and inextricably linked.”
