Sulaiman Afzal, FCA is a fellow of the Institute of Chartered Accountants in England & Wales (ICAEW) and a fellow of ICAP. He has over twenty years of international experience ranging from manufacturing industry (Visteon), public accounting (Ernst & Young & KPMG), Commercial and Investment Banking (The National Commercial Bank and Morgan Stanley).
Mr. Afzal has been involved in US publically-owned corporations which are subject to the auditing and reporting requirements of the US Sarbanes Oxley Law, US Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA) and Supply Chain risk management process.
Mr. Afzal's research has recognized that controls are designed to manage risks, detect and prevent errors, and ensure compliance. His research shows that the existing internal control systems are costly due to reliance on manual controls and nonstandard automated controls. Mr. Afzal focuses on helping multi-national corporations implement automated controls which are 24/7 for global anti-corruption and anti-bribery in supply chain management by applying Continuous Controls Monitoring (CCM). This eliminates "waste" and builds a "value-based" compliance framework.
Mr. Afzal has led a compliance workshop in China. This was held in Beijing, China from November 2011 and was attended by an international audience. In October, 2012, he led a workshop in Las Vegas on Use of Lean Six Sigma for Supply Chain Risk management.
