Advisory Board

Syntrio’s Legal Advisory Board was created in response to the changing nature of the ethics and compliance e-learning industry. As Syntrio has become a leader in the Compliance 2.0 revolution of full-scale holistic training led from the top down, it sought and brought together a group of leaders in legal and compliance thought to improve on existing products and work together to develop new material to enrich the compliance field as a whole.
