Our panellists include:

  • John Whittaker, Partner, Clyde & Co.
  • Olusegun Okubanjo, CEO & Founder, Obsidian
  • Alexandra Wrage, President, TRACE
  • Graham Brunton, Group Ethics & Compliance Manager, Tullow Oil
  • Grace Asemota, Legal Director, Clyde & Co.

This debate offers the opportunity to hear from private-sector experts and law professionals on how they deal with international anti-bribery & corruption legislation when doing business in Africa.  How do they balance compliance with the pressure and expectation to source goods and services directly from the local African economies in which they operate?

With the US’s Foreign Corruption Practices Act and the UK’s Bribery Act, much is required of multinational companies when operating abroad and the consequences of non-compliance can be severe. In this debate, we will explore whether the stringency and penalties of international anti-bribery & corruption legislation is actually damaging the chances of local African companies when it comes to competing with international companies for business.

We will take a look at the legislation and what it requires of companies when operating abroad led by Partner at Clyde & Co. John Whittaker. Our team of expert panelists will then lend their considerable knowledge and experience to addressing this timely question, moderated by Omar Ben Yedder, Group Publisher of IC Publications. We also invite you to contribute to ensure that all opinions and viewpoints are considered.

With spaces limited, please RSVP by 18th Nov to secure your place.

We hope you can make it.
