Our event will cover fraud management, revenue assurance, other kinds of business assurance, enterprise risk management, security and credit risk. Unlike other conferences we want to avoid promising speakers until we are confident they can take part. See below for details of the speakers who have confirmed so far.
Conference Day One: Monday 4th September
MTN will open the conference in a special session that will combine a presentation from Anthony Sani, MTN Group’s Executive with responsibility for Revenue Assurance and Fraud Management, with a panel discussion involving highly-qualified risk manager Yuvi Rajha and well-travelled RAFM expert Nixon Wampamba.
Dr. Güera Romo, Doctor of Philosophy in Engineering Management, will give a presentation that discusses the challenges involved in matching the development of human skills to the rapidly evolving requirements of high technology businesses. Güera will draw on her career background as a senior revenue assurance manager and consultant with experience of working for telcos and other big businesses in South Africa and the USA.
Well-liked Kenyan consultant Joseph Nderitu will moderate a panel debate about managing the risks for mobile money.
Conference Day Two: Tuesday 5th September
Senior enterprise risk management consultant Lee Scargall will lead the discussion of how the implementation of risk management compares between Africa and Europe. Lee has detailed knowledge of telco operations on both continents, most recently as Director of Risk Management for Ooredoo Group.
Tony Crilly of STS Risk Group will fly in to share his advice for how multi-national corporations should cope with today’s changing pattern of global risks.
The conference will close with our ‘wise heads’ panel of experts, who will review the topics discussed over the two days, and give their views about the state of the industry. Eric Priezkalns of Commsrisk will moderate the debate, and the panellists will include long-serving practitioners like Ken Dickenson, formerly the Network Fraud Manager at Telkom.
