As part of our Beyond the EU Series, we are pleased to welcome Brook Horowitz of IBLF Global, and Robert Wilson and Toby Lamarque of Exiger, for a webinar on corruption risk in the newly emerged, high-growth markets.
These markets are among the most likely destinations of UK exports outside the EU post-Brexit and they provide growth opportunities and exposure to corrupt practices in almost equal measure. For UK companies, subject to strict ethical standards and needing to comply with legislation such as the UK Bribery Act, there is a bewildering array of legal and enforcement regimes. Furthermore, there are many different cultures of business based on age-old traditions and ethical norms, which are very different from our own.
Brook, accompanied by two legal counsels specialising in corporate compliance and anti-corruption law, will discuss how exporters can navigate their way through the minefield of anti-corruption legislation and can protect themselves from solicitation from corrupt officials and business partners in high-growth, high-risk markets.
Brook is also running our course: 'Managing Risk and Opportunities in High-Growth Markets' which will explore these issues - and more - through case studies from some of the main emerging markets, role-playing, negotiation simulation, and a lively exchange of best practices, which will equip exporters to approach the new markets with renewed confidence.
