Culture, compliance, governance: making the perfect triangle

Tuesday 10 October (1430 - 1545)

Room C3.6, Convention Centre, Level 3


Corporate Counsel Forum (Lead)
Anti-Corruption Committee


Corporate governance and compliance are areas of focus for corporations in all parts of the globe. To what extent are these influenced, or even driven, by the culture within a corporation? How does diversity and a multicultural approach within a company affect overall corporate culture? How do regulators around the world view corporate culture and its role in regulation, enforcement and penalties? If companies can get corporate culture right, will compliance and corporate governance follow?
