Book Rashmi Now

Globally, corporate scandals have dominated the headlines and the strategy used to manage each crisis varies.  As Warren Buffet’s famous words state “It takes 20 years to build a reputation and 5 minutes to ruin it.”  Whether it is potential employees or future clients and customers, a company must continually maintain a commitment to its brand and the risk to its reputation in the market.  Rashmi extrapolates her own story and her decision to rise through the challenges she faced to explore how corporations can implement a reputation risk strategy focused on integrity and transparency.  How can a company make choices that are risk-informed, incorporate a culture, and avoid disruptions?  Rashmi will share her three-part process to help create a values-based approach to protect any organization from risk to its reputation.

“I invited Ms. Airan-Pace to speak to my class in September 2016. The students in my class were fascinated by her story and cautionary tale. The class had one of the most attentive groups of students that I’ve had this year. I am confident that the discussion in class with Ms. Airan-Pace will be remembered by the students throughout their legal careers. Ms. Airan-Pace speaks from a place of remorse and truly has owned the wrong that she committed. I imagine that this is a very difficult subject for her to address because of her actions. However, she opens herself and shares her lessons for the benefit of others. I look forward to inviting her to speak again next year to my class.”

“Because Ms. Airan was only a few years older than the law students she spoke to and because she graduated near the top of her class, her impact on the students was powerful and immediate. She showed the students how involvement in fairly ministerial activities (house closings) could result in criminal liability. I think her presentation gave students an entirely unique, more nuanced and certainly more vivid sense of how seemingly normal professional practice can cross the line over into fraud. She made a very valuable contribution to the students’ education that others cannot duplicate.”

“I had the opportunity to invite Ms. Airan-Pace to a college class at Florida International University in September 2016. Speaking about your failures in front of complete strangers must be difficult. Rashmi is strong and dedicated to making an impact. She is a unique woman with the courage to talk about her shameful experience with openness with the sole purpose of helping guide people to make better choices than she did. Her only goal was to share her story with the students to guide them with her cautionary tale on how to live their lives making the right choices.”

“I am a big believer that repeated exposure to the ethical contours of legal practice (rules, obligations, risks, and aspirations) yield a more careful and serious consideration of the vows we make when we enter the profession.  In sharing her story, Ms. Airan-Pace is helping make a difference and helping to favorably shift the ethics paradigm in the legal profession.”
