International Trade BBQ Lunch, UK Bribery Act and Implementing Social Media

Event Date: 07 July 2011

The International Trade Club is a popular event for Exporters and Importers and a great opportunity to network, learn and lunch.  As well as enjoying the fabulous barbeque, delegates received some great hints and tips to take away from the interactive learning sessions.


Gareth Price, an Associate in the Business Crime Team at Forbes Solicitors, introduced the UK Bribery Act which has the potential to affect every UK company in a session that will provide an overview of the legislation, what it could mean for you on a practical level, how you should prepare and what professional assistance is available to assist you. Organisations need to put in place (and continually monitor) a robust internal anti-corruption regime. In doing so, they will be able to offer a defence against prosecution for
failing to prevent bribery.
