Before starting his own consulting practice in 2015, he served Jetta Operating Company as Reservoir Engineering Manager and Reserves Manager. Prior roles include founder and Executive Vice President of consulting firm The Strickland Group and partner at Cawley, Gillespie & Associates.

Ethical people are the most common doers of unethical deeds, and they often do it because they don't realize they have gone over the edge. In fact, research tells us that everyone behaves unethically, but only to the extent that we can internally justify our actions.

Mr. Purvis will examine how people get into situations that place them at professional, moral and legal risk, then how to recognize, evaluate and resolve them. Using a combination of videos, examples, and condescending pontification, Mr. Purvis help to raise your sensitivity to and skill to resolve ethical challenges.
