Competency Leads to Success

In our professional development workshops, you gain inspiration and insights, specific expertise and relevant skills. In-depth knowledge helps to protect corporate values, increase competence and expand career options.

Content

In all our professional development workshops and courses, the focus is on your specific management environment. Many of our clients explicitly request us to underscore our practical expertise with research results from the University of St. Gallen (HSG) – one of Europe’s leading business universities.

We use pertinent case studies and practical exercises to maximise your benefits. If you would like us to address specific challenges and issues, you are welcome to send us a list of your questions or subjects in advance. Some practical examples:

  • What sort of compliance measures, prevention measures and controls are effective, efficient and productive – from an offender’s point of view?
  • What are the most frequent risks and “Fraud Red Flags”? How can these be interpreted accurately? How can we gauge the “tone at the top” and the “tone from the top”?
  • Common behavioural patterns, opportunities and motives of offenders! How do these affect internal auditing and reporting?
  • How should exposure be handled? Best Practice!
  • Cyber safety, Big Data Analytics etc.

Portfolio

Our portfolio ranges from tailored, individual training sessions to workshops and discussion groups to in-house seminars or keynote speeches at major events. Our professional development can be conducted in German or in English.
