Head Risk Management & Compliance at World Food Programme
A Governance Risk Management and Compliance professional passionate about solutions that are mutually beneficial to the implementors, customers receiving service and the spirit behind the requirement. I believe rules for the most part aren't an impediment to getting things done, but rather a framework within which we can excel in a sustainable manner. If it doesn't make sense by all means call it out, if it does make sense do it.
How did you get to become an expert in your key topics?
What sub-topics are you most passionate about?
Conduct risk, ethics, regulatory analysis and enforcement, policy formulation and implementation.
Who influences you within these topics?
What challenges are brands facing in this space?
Translation of what is in the vision/mission/values statement into tangible actions that are transformative for staff, customers and investors alike. That disconnect creates a trust deficit and hampers the efficacy of internal controls.
Internal policies that are catch-all for regulatory guidance and not an informed interpretation of what needs to be done and why, and building that into the way things are done. Compliance is treated as separate to operations, as opposed to being how the entity operates.
Lack of clarity on how to maximise risk management and compliance for competitive advantage, and demonstration of the monetary contribution of those activities to the bottom line.
What do you think the future holds in this space?
