Following the great success of our webinar on how to build a career in compliance, we’ve once again partnered up with the Association of Professional Compliance Consultants (APCC) to share more thoughts with you on the wonderful world of compliance.

This time around, our esteemed roster of panellists will discuss the steps you need to take to build a sustainable and effective culture of compliance within your organisation.

The event will take place online on Wednesday, July 20 at 15:00 BST.

Some of the questions to be tackled by our experts include:

  • How would you define the ideal culture of compliance within an organisation?
  • How important is the role of senior management and the board of directors when it comes to building a strong culture of compliance for an organisation?
  • What about the role of technology?
  • What are your thoughts on the need for in-house training and educational programmes in terms of boosting and improving said culture?
  • Both incentives and penalties play a crucial role in our topic du jour. Care to elaborate a bit more on this?
  • What are some other exercises compliance officers can carry out to help develop a better culture of compliance within their firm?
  • And plenty more.

Hope to have you with us in July!
