ABOUT THE SUMMIT
2017 looks set to be another bumper year for enforcement and international cooperation on Anti-Corruption matters. Companies and compliance professionals in particular, face ongoing and entrenched challenges when conducting business in high risk markets and jurisdictions.
Corporate Parity’s 2nd Annual Global Anti-Corruption and Compliance Summit seeks to remedy that by offering hands on and practical solutions to these issues. It is a unique forum for General Counsel, Chief Compliance Officers and other compliance professionals to hear from their peers, to learn best practices and to openly and freely discuss real life issues and solutions in an informal and relaxed setting. It promises to deliver timely and important insights for all those involved in compliance, irrespective of industry or jurisdiction.

The first day of the summit will set the scene, looking at whether we are witnessing the dawn of a new era in anti-corruption enforcement, with international cooperation and enhanced transparency becoming the norm. The day will progress by looking at the impact of whistleblowers and in particular how to set up effective whistleblowing and audit programs within your company, and how to conduct multi-jurisdictional investigations. Participants are welcome to share their views with Enforcers and Lawyers as they debate the key issues facing companies, and breakout sessions will concentrate on issues faced in different industries, namely pharmaceutical & healthcare; oil & gas; automotive & manufacturing and financial services.

We plan to bring together key enforcement officials, Chief Compliance Officers and General Counsel from leading international companies, non-governmental organisations and widely recognised international law firms.
