Speakers & Synopsis:

Ethics in resolution of dilemmas - Life and death in Everest
Speaker: Antonio Martinez Marroquin, Vice President, IIA Singapore (Head of Internal Audit, DKSH Holdings)

Toni will talk about dilemmas that can define one's professional and/or personal life; and he will share his view on how ethics and integrity are the only tool to resolve such dilemmas satisfactorily. A strong ethics and integrity framework are critical for any Internal Auditor and corporation committed to proper Corporate Governance. Toni's talk will be delivered in context of real life or death cases in Everest; and it will serve as introduction to Uantchern's talk about his recent 20 day journey to the Everest base camp.

In Search Of Your Base Camp
Speaker: Uantchern Loh, Governor, IIA Singapore (Chief Executive, Singapore Accountancy Commission) 

"Mountain climbing is extended periods of intense boredom, interrupted by occasional moments of sheer terror.”

A base camp is a place where climbers gather their resources (food, equipment, supplies) before attempting to reach the summit of the mountain.
Base camps are safe places where climbers can plan how to reach the peak - what routes to take, the role of each climber, what to do when an accident happens, and when to turn around.
To turn around means to give up without reaching the summit because it's too dangerous. Making the decision to turn around is especially hard when the climbers have been training for months. That's why the time spent at base camp is important - so that the climbers can plan and commit to making tough decisions when the time comes.
Being at base camp means that your purpose is clear - you want to reach the peak of the mountain. your time at base camp also means that you are committed to planning, teamwork and safety - you won't try to reach the peak at all costs. You know when to turn around and live to come back and climb another day. For climbers, there is no shame in not reaching the summit.
Uantchern will be sharing stories and spectacular photos from his 20 day journey to the Everest base camp. He will provide insights on the importance of base camps to mountaineers and why it's also important for us to have base camps in life. We spend too much time trying to climb the corporate ladder and during those times when we fall, we don't have a base camp to catch us.
