The Training2020-03-27T10:45:54+00:00


We provide during 5 small-scale high-level seminars a practical approach, with the aim of raising the skills of professionals involved in managing compliance issues like business ethics, personal data management and trade compliance.
A helicopter view with all the most relevant compliance topics, not only one, to provide the professional with more depth for risk analysis, efficiency for key compliance activities and a higher value in the management within his team, and for its top executives. Then be eligible to become part of a national community of compliance professionals, updated and enriched by the international work and standards of the International Chamber of Commerce (ICC).


Taking ethics & compliance to the next level might require compliance practitioners and business leaders to rethink integrity policies. In order to help them face the challenge of improving the ethical cultures inside organizations, this seminar intends to provide cutting edge insights on brain science and social psychology to improve effectiveness of communications and training.

Our speaker for this afternoon is praised as one of the top 25 women who revolutionize the German economy, selected by Zeit Online, Handelsblatt and Edition F.

Breaking silos of regulatory risks to outperform traditional compliance approaches

While risks may differ depending on the industry and where operations are based, a holistic approach of compliance might very well be the strongest and most cost-effective to deliver business value and drive ethical behaviour in the company.

  • Latest trends in compliance (programme) requirements for anticorruption, GDPR, export control and economic sanctions,…

While in nonfinancial companies, resources for compliance, risk, audit, and legal functions are globally estimated to an average of only 0.5 for every 100 employees, new customer or third-party vetting requires more and more checks on adverse information. Beyond due diligence, transaction monitoring provides for non-compliance risks mitigation and business insights. But how do companies best make use of external and internal data to improve these processes?

With the vital importance of Internet-related technologies at the centre of business activities of most industries, cyber, data and privacy issues are definitely business and compliance issues. Risks associated with financial penalties as well as economic and legal costs challenge the company’s whole risk culture and support the need for the right attitude towards safety but also care and respect for (personal) data processing.

Both governments and public opinion have pushed for more active enforcement, so regulators  have responded. Heightened regulatory scrutiny translates itself in an increased threat of investigation. But reports of non-compliant behaviour can also happen internally through a variety of channels and must be taken seriously and subjected to a prompt, thorough, and objective investigation.

  • General considerations on compliance investigations preparedness
    • Two experienced professionals, one coming from France, will provide participants during one hour with top notch insights on controls and investigations based on their corporate experience Belgium and in different foreign cultures of investigation, as well as on their interactions with national and foreign control bodies and authorities.
  • How compliance investigations benefit from Artificial Intelligence and Data Science
    • During 2 hours, participants will learn about AI and you will have the opportunity to try it all yourself, so every participant needs to bring his/her laptop. Indeed, when handling complex cases or answering regulatory requests, the challenges to find all relevant information in time can be overwhelming and complex. It does not matter if you are working for a corporation or law firm: today’s legal professional has to deal with an ever increasing number of information requests from regulators, internal investigations, compliance audits, legal conflicts and GDPR-related requests. We all agree that mere searching is no longer good enough. Today you can use computers to help you identify potential relevant and responsive documents. Supported by advanced machine learning, a component of artificial intelligence (AI), computers can be taught to use a sample of relevant and responsive documents to calculate what other documents have similar content.
