When I think about what makes Risky Women special, it pretty clearly comes down to how we as a community enhance the debate with a female viewpoint. I spend a lot of time talking to Risky Women and I love gaining their insight and perspective.
The live events continue to flourish and you tell me that connecting with peers continues to be an important way to engage. It has been a great year across the globe with the Refinitv Regulatory Summits continuing to provide a platform to bring Risky Women together to discuss hot topics in the industry. From London to Japan we have put a spotlight on Financial Crime, the global Regulatory landscape, privacy and looking at new areas such as crypto. Adding fun elements, like the series in the USA titled “Don’t give up the wine list” thanks to RareCat Wines, let our Risky Women increase their wine knowledge and showed how to use the wine list as a business tool! In Hong Kong, our More than Musical evening was a highlight. Joined by two opera singers in an up-close performance we saw first-hand how one woman is disrupting the status quo with a new format of opera to increase and extend the appeal to a younger and more diverse audience. Disruption is everywhere and offers so many opportunities!
The caliber of speakers remains inspiring and I want to thank them all. Sam Mostyn was wonderful in Sydney with a fabulous look at her career and how taking risks was rewarded. As Sam said, “The more Risks I took the luckier I got”. The scope of topics and expert opinions is a point of celebration. In Japan, we were privileged to have Royanne Doi and Yumiko Murakami share the challenges and opportunities of doing business in Japan which offered some great learning for all. That’s just a few of the highlights with more contained on the following pages of this report.
