The ACFE Hong Kong Chapter has been thrilled by the success of our recently completed four-part Investigations Training Workshop. It has been our most successful event ever. The course attracted 168 participants, a record number including members from five other Asian ACFE Chapters in Singapore, Philippines, Malaysia, Indonesia and Taiwan. The continued success of this well-established training programme, run in collaboration with the University of Hong Kong's Centre for Criminology for 10 years, is due in no small part to the high quality of our presented material and the enthusiasm of our members.
Over the four weeks of this course, we were able to offer an outstanding and diverse selection of topics covering the dos and definitely don'ts of due diligence, fraud investigation and governance, the fraud examiner's role in supporting listed companies suspended by the Hong Kong Stock Exchange, the latest post-covid legal developments, cases and remedies for the victims of fraud, and an exploration of digital investigation techniques. We'd like to thank all our presenters for their time and efforts, and all our participants for their enthusiasm and active involvement in this excellent programme. We offer our fraud investigation training programme twice a year on Saturday mornings, with diverse and thought provoking topics presented by experts and specialists to support the professional development of our Hong Kong members and, evidenced by our recent outreach, we now offer this to regionally based CFEs.
If you'd like to join us at our next investigations workshop scheduled for November-December, please look out for announcements on our website, where you will also find information about other forthcoming presentations, including our annual ethics presentation In September, our next breakfast presentation in November and our newly established Young Practitioners' Club.
