But they often pay a heavy personal price –intimidation, bullying and victimization as well as loss of income and unemployment.

In the struggle against state capture and corruption, the role of whistle-blowers is crucial. Through speaking out against ethical failures, they help counter the misuse and abuse of power, sometimes saving organisations and taxpayers millions of rands. But they often pay a heavy personal price –intimidation, bullying and victimization as well as loss of income and unemployment.

Join Nottingham Business School (NBS) and the Gordon Institute of Business Science (GIBS) for a discussion on whistle-blowing and speaking out against ethical failures – what are the challenges and difficulties, and how can it be supported and encouraged?

We will be joined by five panellists who will share their experiences and insights.

  • Dr Claudelle von Eck, former CEO of the Institute of Internal Auditors SA (IIASA)
  • Suzanne Daniels, Eskom whistle-blower
  • Cynthia Stimpel, South African Airways (SAA) whistle-blower
