I have dedicated the past 20 years of my professional life to investigating fraud and corruption in the public and private sector. As a Partner in EY's Forensic & Integrity Services practice, I have led diverse investigations in 23 countries – from tracing USD 0.5 Billion of funding intended for one of the poorest counties in the world to investigating mis-selling of financial products by retail banks in the UK.
It is with this perspective that I authored a book about corporate fraud - “Corporate Fraud: The Human Factor” – which examines how to identify the the early warning signs of fraud and corruption in organisations. I studied behavioural sciences at the London School of Economics, graduating the MSc program 2019. I undertook this course of study in reflection of the repetitive nature of large scale fraud and corruption despite increasing investment in compliance and control systems. I now advise my clients on preventative strategies, based on insights from behavioural science and harnessing technology, to support employees in their conduct and decision-making to build cultures of integrity.
