Going on for 12 successful years, the South African Chapter of Certified Fraud Examiners hosted the largest and leading anti-fraud event in Africa, and second-largest in the world. During the conference, the chapter succeeded in gathering Corporate Decision Makers, Influencers, Exponential Thinkers and Ethical Leaders – the event gathered a truly international and multi-industry community of professionals to network, benchmark and enhance innovative techniques to effectively eradicate White Collar Crime.
Gathering nearly a thousand anti-fraud professionals from more than 20 countries, this year’s event was a truly spectacular and premier event facilitating anti-fraud training and education. The wide range of topics touched on nearly every facet of occupational fraud – Subjects as diverse as “The President’s Keeper” to Civil Society’s contribution in fighting corruption, with sessions for all levels of experience.
Our own Stephen van Coller presented Ethical versus Unethical Leadership on day two of the conference, a presentation worthy of the several applauses and positive remarks from the delegates. With honesty and transparency, Stephen shared seven lessons he had learned since he joined EOH just over a year ago and he coined the old saying that “life must be lived forwards, but can only be understood backwards”.
