Compliance practitioners are all too familiar with managing change in their organisation so being self-aware enables change within themselves and in their environment as they modify their interpretations and behaviour accordingly.

In this the final workshop in the series participants will consider their role as a Compliance Officer in the context of how they perceive themselves and how the business perceives their role. This is an applied, capstone workshop reflecting on the previous 5 building blocks which concentrated on technical areas of the role. These were Upstream Regulatory Risk Reporting, Culture & Conduct, Regulatory Relations /Priorities, Planning, Monitoring and Risk Assessment. Attendance at the previous 5 workshops is not mandatory but an understanding and appreciation is required that the Compliance Officer role is one requiring both technical and soft skills.

The Building Blocks series is specifically aimed at those new to the compliance profession, those newly qualified from the PDC programme, and those who are looking to move into the area of compliance as a career.

The purpose of these workshops is to have practitioners deliver their thoughts on the topic and to engage with those attending to try to address, discuss and share approaches to tackling particular issues members/member groups have.
