In partnership with the ECEC.

In December 2021, the EU Whistleblower Protection Act (“Directive”) will come into force. The European Compliance and Ethics Community is running a half-day virtual conference to understand and discuss how the Directive will affect organizations like yours.

The North Europe conference will include keynote speeches from Kroll and Turing Point and a best practice masterclass from Hazel Bradbury of Clarks. There will be country-specific breakout sessions for Ireland and Netherlands/Belgium and a session for the UK and other non-EU headquartered organizations impacted by the changing regulations. These breakout sessions will feature panel discussions with Kroll experts, lawyers and practitioners who will comment on the new Directive. After the sessions, you'll have the opportunity to ask questions directly to the speakers.
