Next week I will be attending, presenting and moderating at one of the best conferences focusing on anti-corruption compliance that I have recently seen offered in Singapore. If you are a compliance practitioner and want to hear about the most cutting edge best practices regarding the US Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA), UK Bribery Act or other programs related to anti-bribery and anti-corruption compliance and meet some of the top compliance practitioners in the South and Southeast Asia, you should plan to attend. It is the Corruption and Compliance – South & Southeast Asia Summit, hosted by Beacon. It will be held on Wednesday, September 19 and Thursday, September 20. There will be two pre-conference workshops held on Tuesday, September 18. For full details on the event, click here.
Beacon has put together one of the absolute best aggregations of compliance talent that has ever come to Singapore for a compliance conference. Included are compliance industry leaders, literally from across the globe, some of the luminaries included are Katharine Bostick, Director of Compliance & Litigation, Asia Pacific, Microsoft; Rebecca Palser, head of The Risk Advisory Group’s Hong Kong office; Peter Coleman, Executive Director and Head of Forensic, Deloitt; Ronald Goon, Senior Director, Business Practices & Compliance, Johnson & Johnson; and Joyce Hee, Country Counsel, Singapore & Malaysia, HP.
The topics will be among the most relevant and most informative that you could ever ask for at a compliance conference. They include FCPA prosecutions and enforcement actions, translating legal risk into business reality, perfecting contract negotiation and managing evolving contract risk, ensuring your anti-corruption compliance procedures are adequate under the UK Bribery Act and uncovering practical tips for conducting a successful internal investigation in Asia. Simply put the scope of the Beacon event is as broad and far-ranging as you might ask for, nevertheless the focus is on the compliance practitioner and the business of doing compliance inside a corporation.
Bottom Line: This is one of the very best FCPA conferences that has ever been staged in Singapore. It will offer some of the most cutting edge best practices on a wide variety of issues that bedevil compliance practitioners on a day-to-day basis. This list of speaker is the most ‘A-List’ that has ever been seen at such an event in Singapore. You owe it to yourself to attend.
