Forum 2022

Rebuilding Trust – Trust is an essential component of a strong personal or business relationship, but it doesn’t happen quickly and once broken it is hard to rebuild and can negatively impact the organisation.

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.”

The loss of trust can happen through miscommunications or  misunderstandings or a deliberate act and once trust is broken it can affect choices thus increasing the risk of corrupt conduct and fraudulent activity within the organisation.

But trust can be rebuilt and our speakers will discuss ways that trust has been rebuilt  in a practical manner giving delegates tools to help rebuild  trust in their organisations.

Our speakers are drawn from a variety of backgrounds in both the public and private sectors and will share their knowledge through case studies and first-hand experiences.

Speaker- Ben RiX

Ben Rix is the Head of NABs Insider Crime & Integrity Risk Unit which prevents, detects and responds to all events relating to Insider Crime, Anti-Bribery & Corruption and Employee integrity matters. Ben has over 20 years’ experience working across the value chain of Fraud and Financial Crime. Working predominately within banking, but also as a service provider to various industries, including Government and Insurance, Ben now specialises in the protecting the organisation from insider threats and the subsequent exposure to external criminal syndicates.

At NAB Ben has been responsible for building a 1st line of defence operational unit; uplifting preventative controls, implementing detective controls and responding to events specifically relating to Bribery, Corruption and the broader Insider Crime environment.

One of Ben’s key objectives is to ‘Foster a Culture of Integrity’ ensuring an open and transparent environment exists for all sorts of banking deals, protecting the reputations of his banking colleagues from adverse and unfounded accusations as well as mitigating the risk of rogue employees, third party partners and customers making their way in to the organisation.


Presentation – Fostering a Culture of Integrity

In his presentation Ben will discuss the appropriate elements that make up a good AB&C program within the banking industry and how fostering a culture of integrity can play a big part in restoring trust.

Having a strong culture of integrity is about ensuring we are not just doing the right thing because we have to, but because it is the right thing to do. The banking industry is a highly regulated and compliance focussed one, but the way individuals work within side them is much more important than that. 

An effective Anti-Bribery & Corruption program ensures that business is done in an open and transparent way and that no individuals personal needs are placed above that of the organisation and its customers. A good program not just prevents and detects Bribery & Corruption but also protects those who do act with integrity against unfounded allegation stemming from perceptions of ‘behind close door hand shakes’, ‘back room deals’, and ‘looking after your mates’.

Why you should attend the Corruption Prevention Network 2022 Forum?

Who will attend?

The Corruption Prevention Network’s Rebuilding Trust 2022 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 one-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.

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.
