Success in Compliance - A Decade in the Making

Success in compliance relies on people knowing how to behave in situations they get into. Achieving behavioural compliance nevertheless requires multi-skill leaders courageous enough to experiment with tools, functional specifics, communication styles or their own reputation. Few people read policies; practitioners therefore must look for alternative ways of reaching out to their audiences. Jan’s success story builds on a decade of growing a powerful, effective and well received compliance culture in a telecommunications company. Jan will show how connecting people, functions and skills drives developing a mature and trustworthy system on which any management can rely.

Personal accountability in the Insurance Sector

Collective corporate responsibility was seen by many as a barrier to holding individuals to account during the banking crisis of the last decade.

The Parliamentary Commission for Banking Standards (PCBS) recommended a new governance and accountability framework focused on the most senior management of a firm and that firms take more responsibility for better personal standards of conduct at all levels.

The Senior Managers and Certification Regime was recently extended to all solo regulated FCA firms in the insurance sector.

How will the changes impact firms, and what lessons can we learn from the way public attitudes to corporate bodies are changing?
