Mario Menz, Course Leader of Financial Services Law, Regulation and Compliance PG Dip and LLM at the Guildhall School of Business and Law, recently spoke at the International Compliance Association's BIG Compliance Festival.
He participated in a panel discussion on Empowering the next generation of compliance talent, and was able to offer advice on how to build and support compliance teams and in particular to empower those new to the profession.
He said: “Careers in Compliance are intellectually and financially rewarding. With the private sector under enormous pressure to conform to new national and international regulations as a result of ongoing regulatory reforms, growing demand for compliance professionals in the last few years has led to an acute skills shortage in the profession.
“Employers like to see relevant qualifications and evidence of continuous professional development. Our PGDip / LLM in Financial Services Law, Regulation and Compliance has been designed to equip graduates as well as seasoned professionals with the opportunity they need to take their careers to the next level.”
Mario spoke about how to develop key skills needed to succeed within compliance, including stakeholder management, negotiation and conflict resolution, and the ability to take initiative.
The International Compliance Association has around 150,000 members in 157 countries. The Compliance Festival is an annual event that reaches a large number of these members. This year's festival is set to be the biggest online event for regulatory and financial crime compliance professionals of 2020.
