Mr. Smits will discuss how perfectly normal companies can get themselves into alarmingly deep trouble. Reputations get destroyed, careers end prematurely, balance sheets and companies go under. What are the root causes? What do you want to keep an eye on? How can you stay out of trouble (and be an effective leader at the same time)?

Mr. Smits was elected EVP and CFO of Cargill in April 2013, and became Cargill's Chief Compliance Officer in May of 2015. He serves on Cargill's Board of Directors and is a member of the Board's Executive Committee and Finance and Risk Management Committee. He is also a member of Cargill's Financial Risk Committee and is Chairman of the Cargill Process, Data and Technology Committee and the Business Ethics and Compliance Committee. In addition, he serves as Cargill's Regional Director for Latin America.
