Ascensus: In-house lawyers and business leaders event, October

05 October 2023
The Edwardian Manchester

The work of in-house counsel and business leaders is always evolving, but the next 6 months will change many of our roles entirely.

Join our expert speakers on Thursday 5 October 2023 at The Radisson Edwardian hotel in Manchester to hear key updates and essential skills all of us will need to be aware of and utlilise over the next 6 months:

  • ESG and Social Mobility - what it means: What surprising implications will an ESG and social mobility programme have on your business. Lessons learned. Claire Stripp, Head of Talent and Knowledge and Tom Lyas, Head of Resourcing.
  • Planning for a Labour government’s changes to the rights of workers: With the possibility of a Labour government by the end of next year, this session will help you and your business understand and plan for the effect of the likely changes to the rights of those who work for you. Lee Ashwood, Partner.
  • AI – the practical implications: Most organisations are using AI in some way – some cautiously, others less so. What does that mean for you? Richard Nicholas, Partner and Ascensus Lead and Francis Katamba, Partner.
  • Financial crime compliance: what’s next? How does it look now?:  As the government doubles down on its fight against financial crime, we look at the impact of two new measures coming down the track; the Foreign Influence Registration Scheme (FIRS) and the incoming offence of failure to prevent fraud, both of which could have wide reaching implications for companies doing business in the UK. We also reflect on existing provisions in relation to bribery, money laundering and sanctions, looking at practical measures to mitigate risk, including policies and procedures, training and record keeping. Helen Simm, Partner.
