Guest Speakers

  • Sarah Low, Principal Corporate Governance Officer, Department of Premier and Cabinet. Sarah has a wealth of experience in Corporate Governance, specifically in establishing Corporate Governance frameworks for Agencies, cultural and change management. Sarah will speak on how governance encompasses the system by which an organisation is controlled and operates, and the mechanisms by which it, and its people, are held to account. Elements of governance will be examined including ethics, risk management, compliance and administration.
  • Adam Shapiro is a Senior Corruption Prevention Officer at the NSW Independent Commission Against Corruption. Adam specialises in providing corruption prevention training and advice.  Adam will present on the issues surrounding corruption prevention in the workplace, including the use of case studies to explore the importance of governance and due diligence. Rarely is it only one issue or decision that leads to a bad outcome; rather systemic failures and weaknesses in a range of areas leads to poor results and increased opportunities for corruption.
