Session 3 | Conflict of Interest: Managing Relationship Risk and Organizational Conduct

What are the practical implications of managing the risk of conflicts of interest? Does risk across the Middle Eastern market differ from other regions? How you do you communicate your expectations of employees in order to ensure transparency and fair business practices? What are the advantages, challenges and best practices for proactively monitoring for potential conflicts posed by employee relationships inside and outside the company—particularly at a global company with vast operations and complex, multi-party relationships—instead of taking a reactive approach once misconduct has already occurred?
