This award recognises an outstanding compliance individual who always goes beyond the call of duty and has embraced the compliance function within their organisation, implementing it effectively with enthusiasm and vigour, making a demonstrable impact.
Nominees for this award must be an individual person; the recipient will be someone who proactively embraces the compliance function and reacts to regulatory developments positively. Judges will consider examples of how the individual has done this. This may include engagement with other parts of the business, initiation of departmental or individual training, changing business practices within the organisation, and engaging more broadly with the industry, including trade associations. Individuals nominated for this award could have led the way in new compliance regimes in new markets.
This is a significant award, so the judges will look for evidence of an individual who has made an impact. They will want to see anecdotal references in support of the submission.
