Registration from 8am with light breakfast sandwiches. To start at 8:30am until 9.30am.

As part of our efforts to innovate in CPD in 2020 we are now looking to offer more focused sessions outside of lunch hours that allow us to work on niche subjects and soft skills that we hope are useful to our members that can sometimes find lunchtime sessions hard to make.

We’re delighted to have Fiona Jones from Deloitte LLP to present our first breakfast session. She will discuss how to embed the Senior Manager and Certification Regime. This event will focus on how organisations embed the arrangements and commitments made to the FCA in a practical manner.

Please book early to avoid disappointment as numbers will be more limited than our usual lunchtime lectures.

Learning Objectives
Identify practical examples of how to embed the expectations of the FCA and the SM&CR into day to day business activities including:
- Evidencing Reasonable Steps
- Understand practical steps organisations can take to demonstrate appropriate 2LOD and oversight of SM&CR governance.
- Benefits and Challenges of formal delegation of responsibilities
- Understand common operational challenges in implementing Certification and the practical steps organisations can take to avoid this.
- Key regulatory trends and focus areas
