Conversations That Matter – Crime at Work 

A Members' only event

Hosted by:

July 29, 2019 @ 6:00 pm - 8:30 pm


Conversations That Matter is a members’ only, member led In-house event; exploring an issue in depth through members sharing ideas, experiences and expertise.

Whistle-blowers often reveal the powerful levers of privilege, power, work cultures, hidden cartels, weak reporting and regulatory control failures that lead to crime at work.

Transparent and trusted governance is vital; yet people willing to disclose breaches are facing pressure and an uncertain future.

In this “Conversations That Matter”, members will get a deeper understanding of the inter-relationships that underpin white collar crime in the workplace, through fun, innovative methods of sharing our experiences and discussion on an issue that never seems to go away.

Hosted by Shawn Callahan and Paul Cooper.

What are In House Events?

“A facilitated discussion that kept us focused and moving through a complex topic.”  Kate Brooks

In House events draw on the diverse expertise of our members sharing their ideas and experiences on contemporary, complex or controversial topics.

Developed and moderated by members, under the Chatham House Rule. Instead of guest speakers we learn from each other, challenge assumptions, spark new ideas or point the way for potential actions.

In House Events are supported by the Members Forum; an online chat room on the website. The members forum provides access to pre-event and post event reading and discussions; where members (irrespective of attending the dinner) can share insights and comments.
