By StePhAnie hollebrAndSe When BreTT eUrell learned about aci’s certified compliance professional (ccp) accreditation, he saw it as a great opportunity to gain skills and insights into grc best practice. Working with the attorney general’s department on corruption investigation, Brett’s daily schedule is full to say the least. still, he considers professional development a priority. so when he stumbled upon a call for expressions of interest to receive sai global’s ccp scholarship, he submitted an application and was selected the scholarship winner.

Brett saw the course as a great opportunity to engage with other professionals and learn how leading companies aim to outperform their competitors in the grc space. “i undertook the course hoping to gain an understanding of what compliance professionals consider to be ‘best practice’ in the prevention of failures,” he says. “it covered subjects ranging from compliance frameworks to regulatory investigations and change management programs.” When asked what he considered to be the most valuable aspect of the course, Brett reiterated the importance of ongoing professional development for risk and compliance professionals. “i think it is useful for professionals across the regulatory space – including investigators, prosecutors, lawyers, corporate general counsel, compliance professionals, company secretaries and company directors – to have an understanding of the practical measures which can be implemented in order to avoid, or otherwise minimise, the impacts of regulatory breaches. “The emerging risk and compliance profession is vitally impor tant in the continued strength of australian commerce, so it’s vital we keep on top of our game.” ••• Three reasons why you should consider the ccP course 1.
