20th MAY, DAY 1 TOPICS
Going to Court – Could this be You and Your Company?
This is a simulated prosecution case, a fun, high-impact way of engaging the audience, challenging attitudes and behaviors to compliance and reinforcing the importance of operating systems and personal accountability.
With more and more organisations opting to give cash allowances to employees, there’s a greater trend towards Grey Fleets. This session aims to clear up some of the confusion around what responsibilities fall on the employer, and what the employee must do.
Safety Australia Group is a corporate training provider that assists organisations to bridge the gap between procedural expectations and actual worker practices. The unique Mock Trial program encourages a commercially astute and pragmatic approach to risk management, by:
• Explaining how the law really works
• Proving that complexity increases risk
• Showing how lack of engagement creates organisational and individual risk
• Giving you simple ideas that can make a big difference
The Mock Trial is a simulated criminal prosecution where we cross-examine a vertical slice of a corporate’s hierarchy to highlight the types of practical and legal risks that leave businesses and individuals vulnerable to serious consequences.
SPEAKERS OF THE EVENT
Safety Australia Group
Bruce Whitehead & Mark Maddox Bruce Whitehead (R) is the founder of Mock Court International. Bruce was formerly a Police Prosecutor, Prosecutor assisting the Coroner and Senior WorkCover Prosecutor. In 2000 he “changed sides” and co-founded a national risk management consultancy. He sold that company 12 years later to focus exclusively on the delivery of the Mock Court program as it was the most effective medium to explain and demonstrate that once you get to Court you have already lost. Since the early 1990’s Bruce has delivered over 1200 Mock Courts (and never lost a case).
Mark’s background is similar to Bruce’s with over 20 years experience as a Police Prosecutor and Lawyer. He has been delivering this type of training for the last 10 years, but his main “claim to fame” is making a Mock Court witness cry during cross-examination in 2013.
