Event Details


The NIS comprises a two-day conference which is preceded by a one-day program of workshops.

The two-day conference offers plenary sessions with keynote speakers and concurrent streams covering a range of topics including workplace and disciplinary investigations, operational effectiveness during the COVID pandemic, complaint handling, forensic accounting, forensics/technology and investigations involving vulnerabilities. 

A one-day program of interactive workshops is planned for delivery on 2023 TBC. You can register for the conference and the workshops independently, you do not have to attend both.


This event was previously scheduled for 2020 but postponed due to COVID. Consideration was given to delivering this event online, however this would reduce the program to a single stream and inhibit networking opportunities which are an important part of this Symposium. Therefore the aim is to host this event face-to-face, working closely with the Four Seasons Hotel to ensure that all COVID safe protocols are met. Should there be a change to the date or format of this Symposium, you will be notified.


This Symposium is targeted towards:

  • Investigators (generalists and specialists)
  • Investigators and counsellors who work with vulnerable people
  • Complaint handlers
  • Internal auditors
  • Regulation and compliance specialists
  • Governance managers
  • Legal practitioners
  • Public sector executives and managers
  • Corruption prevention specialists
  • Local government executives
  • Human resources and behavioural specialists
  • Senior police officers
  • Academics and university executive members
  • Legal practitioners


Registration fees are yet to be confirmed but will be advertised here shortly.

Early bird registration opens 2022 TBC.
