The Missing Piece in the Fight Against Corruption and Bad Governance | Abel Shelton | TEDxKDISchool

Abel Chukwu Shelton talks about breaking the cycle of corruption and bad governance. Abel Chukwu Shelton is a current graduate student at KDI School of Public and Management-the 3rd of 5 siblings, and born and raised in Liberia, a small country on the West African coast. A mid-career risk management and compliance professional, he has dedicated much of his career to supporting and promoting voluntary compliance in both the private and public sectors of his country’s economy. He has ensured this while working with his country’s Revenue Authority, commercial banks, private organizations as well as with other local and international humanitarian organizations. Aware that corruption and bad governance have immeasurably contributed to his country’s underdevelopment, driven by the desire to change this narrative, and riveted by development initiatives, he established ABTORO Management Services Inc., a small business aimed at bridging the poorly served outsourced industry in Liberia, while offering compliance and audit training to prospective university graduates. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at
