Nordic Business Ethics Survey Launch

The Nordic Business Ethics Survey is a pioneering survey into employees’ views on ethics across multiple business sectors and job roles, initiated by the Nordic Business Ethics Network. The results will be published in Oslo on April 8, 2019 in a cooperation with ICC Norge – The International Chamber of Commerce.

Nordic Business Ethics Network is proud to announce that Richard Bistrong, CEO, Front-Line Anti-Bribery LLC, who advises global companies on current anti-bribery challenges from his experience as a sales executive, and who learned the importance of ethical business conduct the hard way, will present a key note speech at the event. Bistrong spent over a decade as an International Sales Vice-President, bribed foreign officials, covertly cooperated with international law enforcement, and went to prison. Having that experience behind him, he now shares his real-world experience and perspective concerning ethics and compliance challenges which continue to exist at the front lines of international business and how he learned the importance of ethical conduct the hard way.
