Leading in a connected world

Martha Morris Graham, Organisational Change Consultant

The irony of today’s digital world is that more than ever the workplace requires a human touch. As employees seek to find meaning and connection in and through their work, they are placing greater importance on the relational skills of their leaders and on the culture of the work environment. How can leaders help their people navigate the fear and anxiety brought about by machines displacing humans, working alongside AI, and multi-generational workforces, while finding social purpose through their work?

Humanist and organisational change consultant Martha Graham will explore the changing nature of work and of leadership to help drive organisational success, drawing on examples and issues from attendees as well as her own work.

David Lewis, Executive Secretary of the Financial Action Task Force (FATF)

The risks for financial institutions of facilitating crime and terrorism have never been greater.  We are facing increasing threats and substantial vulnerabilities on many fronts, from the use of new technologies by criminals and terrorists, to ineffective preventative measures and poor supervision across most jurisdictions. However, there is also a tremendous opportunity and momentum to modernise the financial fight against crime and terrorism.

Hear from David Lewis as he draws from his extensive experience in law enforcement, and national and international policy development.  Join the discussion on the FATF’s work to support innovation in the financial industry to effectively prevent and detect crime and learn about the first global standard for Virtual Asset Service Providers (VASPs) and subsequent developments including stable coins.
