Anti-Bribery & Corruption Workshop - People are the weakest link (Singapore)

ABC Workshop Programme Outline_page_1.png

The theme for this 2 full-day ABC workshop is about people – the weakest link in any organisation or greatest threat to any organisation. The risk to any organisation of being caught in a corruption scandal is ever present regardless of the local and foreign environment they operate in or interact with and the ABC risk management plan that is in place. No amount of due diligence conducted on staff, third parties and organisations can fully safeguard the organisation. 

This workshop in Anti-bribery and corruption has been designed to meet the needs of managers and staff working in or doing business with organisations that originate from or are situated in countries that are regarded as being of high risk to corruption. 

It has been designed to extend the participant's knowledge beyond compliance with local and international ABC laws whilst aligning with the current strategic focus of many countries to combat corruption.
