This year’s ICA Annual Conference will be focusing on the truly positive aspects of compliance and the ongoing opportunities for the compliance function to influence key stakeholders and outcomes in order to drive businesses forward. Today, compliance professionals don’t simply manage regulatory risk: they also contribute to the wider strategic goals of a firm. This annual conference is a fantastic opportunity to share your thoughts and experiences around making a difference and implementing best practice. It’s a time to learn from others and discuss your ideas, all whilst earning CPD. I look forward to a fireside chat interbiew with Phil Ryan, Chief Executive Officer, ICA. The event site can be found here.
At the end of day one at the InnoXcell Hong Kong Annual Symposium, I will participate in a panel, “A Journey to the Dark Side of International Business and Steps to Protect Your Organization.” In this session, I will share my experience and perspective in corruption and by aligning real-world behaviors and ethics to true anti-bribery compliance with Kyle Wombolt, Partner, Herbert Smith Freehills.

This year I will address the 2017 Oslo Anticorruption Conference (Antikorrupsjonskonferansen). The Conference is a unique collaboration between ØKOKRIM, Transparency International Norway, PwC, and Selmer. The conference focuses on international and national anti-corruption developments and will showcase the most important measures in the current anti-corruption work. The initiative will also contribute to strengthening cooperation between private companies, public sector, development organizations, NGOs and other relevant actors.
The anticorruption conference is organized for the fourth time on Thursday 8 and Friday 9 June 2017. This year’s conference will, as in previous years, provide a unique insight into current corruption cases, risk development in selected areas, regulatory developments, and specific topics for specialization, debate and learning.
The conference wants to contribute to important anti-corruption competency issues, and is appropriate for representatives of all companies and organizations that face corruption challenges and working to prevent and detect corruption, including:
– Private sector
– public sector
– Non-governmental activities (NGO)
– Welfare / aid organizations
The conference is non-profit and all proceeds from the conference will cover the costs associated with implementation. Anticorruption Conference offers professional expertise, inspiration and facilitates networking across sectors.
