About the trainer - Dave Carter

Dave has been Head of Counter Fraud for an number of large international charities, including the British Council and Save the Children, where he had global responsibility for fraud & crime management.

Both of these roles were newly created, so Dave devised and implemented the key strategies which allowed for this risk to be managed in very challenging operational enviroments, and on occasions during the worst humanitarian disasters that have occurred in modern times. Travelling extensively, Dave built a global team to support the operational function, to provide reassurance to trustees, and to ensure compliance with legal & regulatory responsibilities.

The majority of Dave’s career was spent within the City of London Police, where he served for 14 years, rising to the rank of Detective Chief Inspector. Most of this time was spent as a detective investigating serious and major crime, including homicide, until he moved into the Economic Crime Directorate of what is the national lead force for fraud. Whilst there he specialised in international fraud, especially those involving organised crime groups targeting UK banks, whilst head of the specialist unit, the Dedicated Card & Plastic Crime Unit.
