Forum 2021


Due to the Sydney current lockdown and the uncertainty that will continue for some time into the future, the Corruption Prevention Network (CPN) Board of Directors have made the difficult decision that:-

  • the one-day Forum scheduled for 7th September 2021 be postponed until

   Tuesday, 8th March 2022


  • Same venue Dockside, Darling Harbour;
  • Same great speakers and topics, lunch, morning & afternoon teas and after forum drinks;
  • Same investment: ▪ $990 including GST for early bird until 31 January 2022; ▪ $1,320 including GST from 1 February – 8th March 2022;
  • Early bird registration will be reopened 1 December 2021 and extended until 31 January 2022.

The good news is that the

  • lunchtime education sessions will continue on the third Wednesday of the month from 12.30-1.30pm but only virtually on Zoom during lockdown and restrictions.

 Join your colleagues at these great educational sessions.

Why you should attend the Corruption Prevention Network 2021 Forum ?

Who will attend?

The Corruption Prevention Network’s Rebuilding Trust 2021 one day forum will provide practitioners with insights and best practices by industry’s top experts through keynotes, panel discussions and interactive sessions.  Attending the 1 day Forum will enable you to network with others to help you better understand, identify, manage and prepare to meet emerging challenges.

An interactive format of plenary sessions and discussion panel and the opportunity to network with other expert practitioners is a must for all organisations in the current business environment.

The diverse nature of our audience enables a variety of perspectives and subjects for discussion. Most importantly, our forum helps to promote awareness of fraud and corrupt conduct issues in the community.


After a lengthy layoff from in-person events we are very excited to have an opportunity to meet and gather as a community once again.  During the day you will be able to chat to colleagues or make new connections over coffee, at lunch and at the end of day drinks.   A great way to learn, listen and participate in good company over this one day event.

Our Theme

Rebuilding Trust

Trust is an essential component of a strong relationship, but it doesn’t happen quickly it takes time to build and work to retain but trust can also be destroyed quickly.

Without trust, people give up on relationships and leave organisations, cynicism reigns, progress grinds to a halt, and self-interest trumps the common good,” states Ken Blanchard, co-author of The One Minute Manager and Trust Works! “But, in a trusting environment, people feel free to move faster, risk more, and give it their all. Creativity flourishes, productivity rises, barriers are overcome, and relationships deepen.”  However, trust, once it is broken, is challenging to rebuild.

Value for Money

At the Corruption Prevention Network our primary purpose is to support anti-fraud and corruption practitioners throughout the state of NSW, to better understand the current issues and techniques in today’s marketplace and bridge the gap between public and private sectors by highlighting risks that span both industries.  To this end, we provide free monthly lunchtime education sessions and our 1-day forum at a low-cost investment of $990 inclusive of GST early bird (until 31 January 2022) and $1,320 inclusive of GST from 1 February to 7 March 2022. 

Quality Speakers

The Program boasts a range of topics by speakers, experts in their field, who will share their knowledge so you can stay at the leading edge in your organisation.  Speakers in the areas of ethics, leadership, cyber-security, fraud prevention, anti-bribery and corruption, investigations, in both the public and private sectors.   Our speakers will take us step-by-step showing how trust can and has been rebuilt in a variety of industries. They will also answer our panel’s question “Rebuilding Trust is the Journey Worth the Effort?” There is something for everyone.


Our venue is Dockside, Darling Harbour, Sydney, close to Central Business District offices and readily accessible by public transport.  COVID19 safe practices will be in place including social distancing.

COVID19 Safe Practices

In these unprecedented times, we acknowledge the ongoing community concern about the Coronavirus (COVID-19).  Our venue will continue to be vigilant in monitoring the situation and share how we can all proactively implement measures to ensure the health, safety and wellbeing of all delegates, speakers and sponsors to the forum.  High standards of cleaning and hygiene throughout the venue and especially in dining areas will continue.  The current NSW Department of Health Guidelines will be implemented for the forum.

Educational Event Code of Conduct

Educational events present opportunities to learn, share knowledge and network. The forum day should represent a safe, enjoyable and inclusive environment for all people, irrespective of gender, race, ethnicity, age, sexuality, religion, disability, socio-economic background, experience, size, shape and so on. No one should be subject to any harassment, bullying or abuse. Any such behaviour will not be tolerated and we will take such action as we deem necessary to ensure it does not reoccur.  This may include immediate removal from an event and a prohibition from attending future events.

Continuing Professional Development

The goal of the continuing professional education (CPE) is to ensure that practitioners maintain an adequate level of current knowledge and proficiency in the field of fraud and corrupt conduct prevention, identification, detection, management and reporting.

Although the Corruption Prevention Network has no certification requirements other organisation do require the attainment of CPE hours over an annual and three-year certification period.  To this end the Corruption Prevention Network records CPE’s for delegates in attendance.  Sign-in sheets will be provided to record your attendance and an attendance certificate will be issued to all delegates. Up to 7.5 CPE hours are available.
