His most recent Whitepaper - 'The Compliance Covenant' - was the featured article in Compliance and Ethics Professional, the US’s leading industry journal, and takes a new and highly original approach to the challenge facing all compliance officers; that of changing the significant ‘push’ needed to deliver and maintain an effective compliance programme into employee ‘pull’.

His thought-provoking ideas and infectious enthusiasm appeal to diverse compliance, ethics and governance audiences, and readers, worldwide.
