Allow me to introduce myself and elaborate on some of my experiences as conference chairman, panellist and Key Note speaker at the various international conferences and as a consultant, teacher, instructor, researcher, commentator and practitioner on 4 continents.

The different assignments has given me a remarkable amount of first hand global awareness on key Good Governance, Risk Management, Compliance (GRC), Fraud, Bribery and Corruption (BFC) concerns and dilemma. The steering and management of Copenhagen Compliance and Copenhagen Charter Groups has also provided extensive international experience including the consideration of politics and political issues, related to the above subjects.
