Michael Woodford MBE: a story of loyalty and betrayal by Olympus’ former CEO and whistleblower

Michael’s story is extraordinary: as the newly-appointed president and then CEO of Olympus he uncovered an accounting fraud approaching $2 billion. In blowing the whistle and exposing the scandal, Michael lost his job, the Olympus share price plummeted and the entire Board was forced to resign. Michael’s story is both hilarious and terrifying, and his account of events is published in his book ‘Exposure’.

In Australia, companies are dealing with considerable regulator and media scrutiny. What are the expectations of our business leaders? To examine this, following his presentation, Michael will be joined on a discussion panel by the Hon. Justice Brigitte Markovic of the Federal Court of Australia and UNSW Business School Professor Clinton Free.
