HONG KONG, China - March 13, 2013 - PRLog -- Blue Umbrella, the leading Asia-focused provider of public source due diligence and pre-employment screening reports, in collaboration with the prestigious Richard Ivey School of Business – Asia (Ivey), are proud to launch the invitation-only “Blue Umbrella – Ivey Asia Risk Management Program: Risk Identification, Management and Leadership.” To be held on 21 March 2013, the program aims to provide a world-class learning experience for specialized compliance and due diligence professionals from across the Asia Pacific region, hailing from the world’s biggest investment banks, multinational corporations and Western governments.

The one-day workshop is an exclusive opportunity for participants to share risk management experiences and best practices with fellow leading industry figures under the facilitation of Dr. Jeffrey Gandz - Ivey Professor of Strategic Leadership and Managing Director, Program Design for executive development programs. Structured as a dynamic combination of lectures, case studies and discussions, this format is formulated to induce high levels of delegate participation.

“This program design embodies more than just an educational opportunity for compliance professionals; it opens up an exclusive platform allowing our attendees to connect and learn from one another through Ivey’s renowned case study method,” said Janet De Silva, Dean at the Ivey School of Business, Asia. “We hope that each participant will leave equipped with the tools to better manage and lead the in-house compliance programs, structures, and culture at their respective organizations.”

Following the global financial crisis in 2008, corporations have been facing a world of shifting political dynamics that have precipitated more stringent regulations as well as more rigorous enforcement. Authorities have penalized many organizations for corruption, bribery, money-laundering and other similar violations. “These disciplinary actions tend to result in massive fines and irreversible reputational damage for the companies involved,” warns Allan Matheson, Managing Director of Blue Umbrella. “There is no model guidebook out there that can guarantee compliance; that’s why it’s important for firms to share best practices and pitfalls and learn from one another. We hope that this workshop, with the expert facilitation from Dr. Gandz, can be the vehicle that brings key players together to communicate ideas on how to best protect companies from all types of risks.”
