What happens when a global organization has policies & procedures that clash with local customs & norms? The answer is that you risk non-compliance. Which is where Cultural Compliance comes in and it's the topic of my conversation with my guest Michael Kuckein.

Michael is a Compliance Officer working for a global firm and based in Istanbul, Turkey. His experience representing a Western company in a culture where the norms are somewhat different, reveals much about the challenges of ensuring consistency across a global organisation.

Michael has some really innovative ideas about how to manage this challenge; it's a discussion that's relevant to anyone operating in a global sphere.
