AGENDA

The Evolution of Anti-Corruption Compliance: Are you Making the Change?

Compliance, culture, conduct and risk management are not topics that stand still or wait for anyone. They are constantly evolving. It is therefore fundamental in the current age to be constantly improving internal infrastructure and policies to ensure your organisation is fully abreast of developments and fully compliant.

 

The underlying theme behind this year’s event focuses on the continual evolution of compliance: how the industry has responded to ongoing challenges, the impact of new regulations, how organisations have developed more mature and sophisticated and consistent approaches to compliance best practices. The programme will revisit selected topics from last year and reflect on the state of affairs 12 months on. Themes to be explored will include:
