While there’s a huge amount of information and resources out there on SMCR, there’s surprisingly little practical guidance when it comes to actually implementing it.

Led by two experienced regulatory compliance consultants, our workshop will provide you with practical tools, guidance and examples to help you navigate and successfully implement the regime at your firm. 

Tuesday 17th September, 09:00am – 1:15pm 

The workshop will be held in London, EC3 and spaces will be limited to 12 delegates per workshop.
