- How the Panama papers have educated societies about shell companies and beneficial ownership, by focusing upon how corrupt money travels globally, and how it impacts populations along its path.
- How are companies managing supply chain risk.
- How can training be used as a tool to move anti-corruption compliance away from a box-ticking exercise and towards a values-based training mission.
- What might it mean to look beyond a standard legal view of corruption into its wider impact, and how that might influence audit and compliance initiatives.
- Why anti-bribery due diligence needs to be more than a pin point process.
- What is a clear eye view of corruption risk? The importance of understanding the influence, impact, agenda and relationships of third parties among various stakeholders.
- What are the hubs and spokes of corruption?
