Anti-Corruption Training Workshops

Following the successful launch of the Anti-Corruption online training in June, BusinessNZ teamed up with Deloitte and Chapman Tripp in September to deliver further training around the country. BusinessNZ has published a free downloadable anti-corruption guide developed by Deloitte and Chapman Tripp which was the basis for the face-to-face training.

Daniel Kalderimis and Josh Blackmore of Chapman Tripp, along with Lorinda Kelly and David Seath of Deloitte visited seven locations around the country to provide interactive workshops to the BusinessNZ and ExportNZ network. The sessions were very well received with participants benefitting from the legal and operational risk experience shared by the presenters and some of the attendees.

Attendees included a significant number of exporters to countries that rank as high risk on the Transparency International Corruption Perceptions Index. There were a number of interesting discussions regarding the actual corruption situations that have occurred.

Deloitte will now follow this up with their second Australia and New Zealand Bribery and Corruption Survey scheduled for publication in early 2015.
