CPE Talk on Red Flags – Combating Bribery and Corruption
The NUS Business School Alumni Association (NUSBSA) Accountancy Wing organised a Continuing and Professional Education (CPE) talk on “Red Flags – Combating Bribery and Corruption” on 22 May. This talk was sixth in a series that the Association organises for their members, and accountants in general.
Mr Sarjit Singh (Accountancy ’91), Executive Chairman of Ardent Associates LLP, focused on the fraud triangle and safeguards against bribery and corruption. He also shed some light on recent cases such as Keppel Offshore & Marine (Keppel O&M) as well as 1 Malaysia Development Berhad (1MDB).
Having been the Chief Financial Officer of AIA Singapore and Aviva Asia, as well as an assurance and advisory consultant at Price WaterhouseCoopers, Mr Singh shared his insights and beliefs in what accountants need do to ensure that their firms are aligned with international best practices to maintain an above-board and transparent business environment for companies and society. His firm is the winner of the Best Practice Award in the Singapore Accountancy Awards 2016.
72 members and guests of NUSBSA attended the talk.
