The man who brought down the 'House of Wirecard': Dan McCrum speaks at ECEC 2020 / Limited number of free tickets still available for the virtual compliance conference (news with additional features)
This is a real coup: Dan McCrum will speak at the European Compliance & Ethics Conference (ECEC) organised by EQS Group AG on 6 October 2020. This investigative journalist from the Financial Times is a name on everyone's lips at the moment; through tireless research, McCrum uncovered accounting fraud at Wirecard in his article series "House of Wirecard". At this Europe-wide industry summit for the compliance community - the premiere of which is being held online due to the COVID 19 pandemic - McCrum will report how he unearthed one of the biggest business scandals in German history.
Dan McCrum has seen some stressful times in recent years. As early as 2014, he noticed discrepancies in Wirecard's balance sheet, but it took a long time before the full extent of the scandal came to light and the technology group's house of cards collapsed. During this time, the journalist and his colleagues from the Financial Times were exposed to many dirty opposition tricks. They were spied on, defamed as market manipulators and in the end even prosecuted.
Dan McCrum said: "I'm looking forward to sharing the incredible story of Wirecard, how after six years of reporting the Financial Times exposed a €20bn fraud with the help of whistleblowers, in the face of determined opposition and dirty tricks, and to talk about the lessons that can be learned from the scandal".
Marcus Sultzer, Chief Revenue Officer at EQS Group AG, said: "I am delighted that Dan McCrum has agreed to speak at our conference and I can promise all participants a highly interesting interview with extensive behind-the-scenes information. In our preliminary talks it has already become clear that Dan McCrum is not only an excellent investigative journalist but also a real expert in compliance. Using Wirecard as an example, he will again make it clear how important an efficient compliance management system is for identifying risks at an early stage and averting damage to one's own company".
Dan McCrum is one of more than 25 experts who in their virtual presentations at the ECEC 2020 will provide overviews of the issues currently affecting the European compliance industry. Seven local breakout sessions will also address country-specific issues from Germany, France, Ireland, Italy, Poland, Switzerland and the United Kingdom. A further conference highlight will be the virtual presentation of the ECEC Award; this is where a European jury will honour an outstanding and innovative compliance project.
All information on the programme and how to register can be found at: European Compliance & Ethics Conference. For those late deciders, there is still a limited number of free tickets available.
