I thoroughly enjoyed the course and have fallen back in love with compliance again! I was able to debate and discuss risk and compliance topics with SMEs from countries such as Russia, Sri-Lanka and Japan from a variety of sectors including banking, gambling, food and government agencies. Where else can you get such rich diversity of thought, background, ethnicity and approach. I loved it and plan to stay in close contact with a large number of my cohort as we formed some great relationships. The course leader clearly has a passion to want to help people, and was always there for guidance and support. The specialist external tutors were also thoroughly engaging and motivating – big highlight of the course.
