Richard Ferris EMEA Chief Counsel, Aon

Simon Airey Partner, Paul Hastings 

Morgan Miller Partner, Paul Hastings 

An increasingly common theme in investigations globally is a sharp focus on the role of management and the accountability of individuals.   More than ever before, prosecutors are scrutinising what management was aware of and what action they took - or didn’t take.   The extra-territorial effect of many criminal and regulatory laws means that management also need to be conscious of how a foreign regulator may put the company - and its employees - in their sights.   A recurring challenge is how management can partner effectively with Legal and Compliance while navigating the competing commercial priorities.   By reference to a range of hypothetical and real life experiences, Simon Airey and Morgan Miller will offer UK and US perspectives on how a company, and particularly management, should respond to investigations and a range of compliance challenges.

11:50 - 12:35

Jonathan Cox former Global Head of Whistleblowing, Barclays

Topics covered will include: - Deciding on the programme’s name  Understanding exactly who is and isn’t a whistleblower  Managing and maintaining reporting hotlines  Utilising third-party vendors  The identity status of the reporter, and why it’s important  Appreciating global differences in legislation, regulation and data privacy  Recognising and handling malicious allegations  Providing feedback to reporters  The presentation will conclude with several case studies.

12:35 - 13:20

Lord Bernard Hogan-Howe

former Commissioner of the Metropolitan Police

Bernard Hogan-Howe led a large police force in the challenging area of Merseyside before assuming leadership of the largest force in the UK, the Metropolitan Police.  In the Inspectorate, he also oversaw the Police Service of Northern Ireland and was responsible for terrorism and organised crime throughout the country. Against the background of this unique experience, he will share how a leader moves a culture forward to produce more efficiency, better results and a reduction in crime; he will offer his insights into the fight against terrorism over the last six years and the challenges for our immediate future; and he will talk about getting better results when a £3.6 billion budget is cut by £600 million.  Lord Hogan-Howe will also talk about what it is like to take over an organisation that is reeling from the 2011 riots, losing half its Management Board, suffering huge budget cuts and struggling with the need to plan for the 2012 Olympics - all this against a backdrop of constant accountability through the Home Secretary and Prime Minister, the Mayor of London, Parliament and of course the world's press. In a moderated key-note session, Lord Hogan-Howe will also take questions from the audience on topics of general interest.

13:20 - 14:20


Selection of sandwiches, drinks and snacks available.

14:20 - 15:05

David Hall Chief Executive Officer, Ideas Centre Group

The world is changing at an ever increasing pace, but the decisions we make and the behaviours that we display are based on models of “reality” which are based on our understanding of the out-dated patterns from the past. We must find ways of challenging these patterns, to free up our thinking, to generate fresh and novel (i.e. creative) ideas that then feed innovation. This session will demonstrate how creativity can remove the blockages that operate within everyone’s minds, to unleash the power of Breakthrough Thinking, to generate ideas that are both novel and useful. A culture of creativity can substantially differentiate a business, attracting and retaining the best staff whilst enhancing added value. Outcomes Attendees will leave with an understanding of: The strategic benefit of adopting creative thinking within the culture of their business;  The blockages that operate within the mind of all Individuals that effectively block creativity;  Specific techniques to overcome those blockages;  A practical and systematic approach to introduce creativity into the culture of their business

15:05 - 15:50

Ben Regnard-Weinrabe Partner, Paul Hastings

Creative eKYC

“Traditional” eKYC providers have operated for some time by offering services that draw on sources such as credit reference and fraud prevention databases, and electoral roll information. However, their services come at a cost and often have limitations in jurisdictions where the availability of such databases is more limited. Firms, particularly in the booming world of fintech, are therefore looking to increasingly creative ways of carrying out eKYC, including by drawing on non-traditional sources such as social media, location and behavioural data. In this session Ben will explore the possibilities (and limitations) of these sources in the light of various regulatory guidance.

15:50 - 16:10

Afternoon Coffee

Selection of teas, coffees, cakes and fresh juice available.

16:10 - 17:00
