Compliance is no longer a technical discipline that is focused just on complying with the narrow confines of the law. A compliance manager that remains focused on just the technical aspects of legal compliance is unlikely to gain influence in the Executive Suite or Boardroom. Compliance has moved firmly into the mainstream of governance and risk management. The influential Head of Compliance needs to be able to match their management skills and methods with those of their C level counterparts. If they do not present compliance as a broad management discipline, utilizing all the business, risk and project management skills, they are unlikely to be taken seriously.

Regulators and other stakeholders, such as credit and investment ratings agencies, are demanding to see that organizations have effective compliance risk management, effective compliance governance, and can demonstrate that they are driving a strong compliance culture across and deep into their structures.

Anyone who has some level of management or governance responsibilities for compliance should attend this leading edge masterclass.
