She will be giving tips and suggestions for dealing effectively and successfully with whistleblowing and best practice from around the world. She will engage with the audience and encourage questions and problem solving together so that attendees will leave with new ideas and strategies.

More about the speakerGeorgina Hallford-Hall, Whistleblowing UK
Georgina is CEO and Founding Member of Whistleblowers UK and also Director of Strategy and Policy for the All Party Parliamentary Group for Whistleblowing in Westminster
Georgina started life in the Royal Navy, before moving briefly into financial services, before returning to an HR/Training role with the civil service for 16 years. She finished her career as the department's only internal HR/L&D consultant with responsibility for the CEO and her team at The Pension Service.
Georgina then moved to a leading consultancy firm and jointly took up a post as CEO of a charity. It is at the charity that she blew the whistle on financial malfeasance and failures to observe proper governance, something that in recent times has become very topical.
Georgina is one of the 3% of whistleblowers who won a case in the Employment Tribunal in the UK. After this experience, she took a career break to learn Spanish before being lured into setting up WhistleblowersUK, a not for profit organisation to share herexpertise in this complex and challenging area.
Over the last year WhistleblowersUK made legal history in bringing the first successful Employment Tribunal against a bank since the introduction of the senior manager's regime in the UK and brokered the resolution in the Lloyds/HBOS whistleblower case that has exposed the importance of embracing and encouraging a speak up culture in the prevention of financial crime. In addition, they have settled over £2m worth of cases helping organisations to successfully extricate themselves from litigation.
