Our anti-bribery masterclass in Birmingham with Chief Compliance Officer of IMI PLC

Print Friendly

We’re pleased to announce our first overseas anti-bribery masterclass in Birmingham.

This will be held on Thursday,  February 2nd from 2.30pm-5pm in our Birmingham office.

We are very fortunate that we shall be joined by a Jo Morgan, Chief Compliance Officer of IMI PLC who has vast experience in this area, following a US DOJ investigation into an acquired US subsidiary, Control Components.

The investigation resulted in plea agreement where CCI agreed to pay a criminal fine, implement and maintain a comprehensive anti-bribery compliance program; retain an independent compliance monitor, serve a three-year term probation; and continue to cooperate with the Department of Justice in its ongoing investigation.

No ordinary Bribery Act seminar

This is no ordinary Bribery Act seminar.

This has a real case study with the chance to hear from one of the team who had to deal with it from within the company. In this highly practical session you will hear about:

–          The way the case came about, what it was like to deal with it and why it still has ramifications nearly 5 years on

–          What measures the company put in place in response

–          What other practical measures they are putting in place in response to the Bribery Act

–          What you might do differently when you get back to your office

Receive a free copy of the Anti-Bribery & Corruption Policy now in place

Plus you will receive copies of their Anti-Bribery and Corruption policies and procedures which are drafted in a practical manual style.

A focus on taking advantage of global markets and managing risk

The session will focus on the practical realities of taking advantage of the global market place, the risks and importantly the inside tips on managing those risks to an acceptable level.

The masterclass will run on the Chatham House Rule.

Attendance is free but places will be limited.
