The need for effective global compliance and governance has never been more pronounced. Failing to get these vital areas of management right can have lasting and damaging consequences for international corporations.
From our Business Ethics Debates we know how much of a challenge it can be for multinationals to embed the necessary policies and codes of conduct successfully. This year we are taking our popular Business Ethics Debate format and are co-hosting a discussion on effective anti-corruption compliance at the first Compliance Week conference to be held in Europe.
GoodCorporation’s Leo Martin and Compliance Week editor, Matt Kelly, are leading a panel discussion that will pose the question – “How far should corporations go to combat corruption?” We will be joined by an impressive panel, which includes Gemma Aiolfi, head of corporate governance and compliance at the Basel Institute on Governance and Geoff Cruikshanks, chief ethics and compliance officer at Deutsche Post.
Compliance Week Europe is being held at the Hotel Sofitel in Brussels from 14-15 October 2013. The debate will be held as the keynote session that closes day one of the conference. The conference will be attended by compliance, risk and audit executives from corporations across Europe, Africa and the Middle East.
